JULY, 181)5. 


By the Rev. Edmund B. Willson, A.M., of Siikni, Mass. 

Frederick Lotiirop Ames, A.B., was the only son of Oliver 
and Snrali (liOthrop) Aiues, and was born in Nortli Knston, j\lnss., 
June 8, ISlif), and died while passing over Lon<jj island Sound, 
!Septend)er 13, 181)3. 

The iirst of his aneestors in Amerlea was William Anice, who 
came in 1()35 from IJruton, in Somersetshire, J^]ngland, to Brain- 
tree in the ^lassaehnsetts Colony. The line of deseent from him 
to the subject of this sketch is : AVilliam,' eJohn,^ Thomas,^ Thomas,^ 
John,* Oliver,^ Oliver,'' Frederick Lothrop.** Frederick L. Ames's 
mother was a dau<i;hter of Hon. Koward Lothrop of Easton, and 
sister of (Jeorge Van Ness Lothrop, U. S. Minister to Kussia under 
the first administration of President Cleveland. ]\lr. Ames was 
descended in the sixth «4-eneration from IJrian Oakes, the fourth 
president of Ilarvaid College. Hon. Oakes Ames was his uncle, 
and Kx-Governor Oliver Ames was his cousin. 

C/aptain ,I()lm Ames, the gi-eat-grandfather of Frederick L. Ames, 
was the beginner in a small way, as a maker of shovels in \V'^est 
l^ridgcwater, of what has become one of the most extensive and 
noted of the industries of New England : carried on at North 
ImihIou first by Olivci* Ames iVl Soiis, — (he sons being Oakes and 
Oliver Ames, — and, since a re-organization in 187(1, under the title 
of Oliver Ames &, Sons Corporation. . 

Educated in the wholesome home trainin2: and neighborhood 
schools of Easton at the start, then for a time in a school in C\)n- 
cord, Mass., and afterward fitted for college in the famous prepara- 
tory school at Exeter, N. H., Phillips Academy, young Ames j[wssed 
from that school to Harvaixl College, and graduated in 1854. 

At his graduation his inclination was to the study of law. But 
there was a call for him in the large family business. Yielding his 
own })reference to his father's wishes, he took his place with his older 
kinsmen, and engaged at once in the service of the Com{)any at 
North Easton, making himself acquainted with their already widely 
^cxtended and still extending business enterprises. He became a 
mend)er of the firm in 18G3, and its treasurer in 187G, when 
the re-organization took ])lace. This office he continued to fill to

tlic ciul of Ills life. At the deatli of his futlicr, which occurred 
j\I;u'ch !), 1877, he succeeded to his position as the licad of the house. 
His advance as a man of business was from the first steady and sure, 
soon carrying him beyond the limits of tkc manufacturing plant at 
North Easton. Among the many New England men who have dis- 
tinguished themselves and their section of the country by building 
up an exceptional prosperity, he has had few equals in the capacity 
for seeing with a clear judgment and grasping with a firm hand the 
conditions of success. The construction of railroads in all parts of the 
country was developing its resources, and these resources as they were 
dcv('l()|)ed demanded additional facilities for trans})ortation and travel. 
Vast cMiJabilities for oj)cning and improving unoccupied regions j)re- 
sented themselves to far-seeing men. And now, the country plunged 
suddenly into a civil conflict for very existence, had desi)erate need of 
exj)edltious connuunication between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. 
l)ut such enter|i)rises iuNolved extraordinary risks. Among the most 
sagacious of (hose who comprehended both the magnitude and the 
inipoitanee of tlu'se entei'piises, and at tlu^ same time the risks, were 
the brothers, Oakes and Oliver Ames. Patriotic observers all over 
the land welcomed their aid, applauded and endorsed their leadership. 
Frederick L. Ames was of the same blood. Not rashly but boldly, 
he entered this field, took on himself wnth a rare coolness and con- 
fidence heavy responsibilities in undertakings the results of which 
even the sanguine scarcely ventured to predict. His expectations 
were justified. And so consi)icuously was his ability manifested, so 
approved his foresight by events, that his co-operation was sought 
at all points by those who had large, complicated and difficult projects 
of this nature in hand, till "he held directorships in about three 
score railroad companies." It did not take men of discernment long 
to conclude that a man who had a head for the management of such 
far-reaching and intricate oi*ganizations w^as a desirable adviser and 
asslstaid. in aruj sort of affairs requiring these qunlitles. Naturally 
he was solicited to become associated with many and varied corporate 

To some of these solicitations v/idely away from the transactions 
of business he lent a sympathetic ear, accepting official trusts and 
responsibilities in educational, charitable and religious organizaions 
in which he took a sincere interest, bringing to them the clear 
head so necessary as the com[)lement to the warm heart. He was 
])resldent of the Home for Incurables, a trustee of the Children's 
Hospital, of the iNIassachusetts General Hospital, of the jNIcLean 
Insane Asylum, and "was very constant and faithful in his duties to 
those institutions." He was a Fellow of Harvard (College, and as a 
loyal son was devising liberal things for her benefit, the fulfilment 
of which oidy his death prevented. He was a staunch upholder of 
his Church, and both Unity Church in North Easton and the First 
Church in Boston had his reverent affection and support. 


ISOT).] Chief Justice of the United States. 275 

Mr. Ames was as far as possihle from a devotee to the accumula- 
tion and dlspensiiif^ of wealth. As his most intimate friends describe 
him, there were In him not only^ the elements of the naturalist and the 
artist, of the student of hteraturc and (ris('Ij-)le of scien(;e : these 
had a develo})ed life in him, and a leadlni( InHuence with him. In the 
thick of his busiest en^a<^a'mciits they clalnuHl a just portion of his 
time, had his care, showed their ru!in«^ presence in his conversation 
and in lils^ character, lie not oidy let the accom[)nshcd architect 
build for him : he meditated and studied the structure for himself as 
an idealist. lie not only bought and placed the picture that others 
approved and admired : he too admired It and knew wherein it was 
admirable, lie not only s[)ent money in beautifying his grounds : he 
did not leave It all to the '^ardener : he selected anionic; the thini^s 
that might grow there what his taste preferred, and caressed his 
favorites. His bot)ks not only ornamented his shelves, he had them 
down and read them. AVhen he came home he left his business out- 
side, not seeminji: merelv to have turned in for rest and re-fittinor for 
the ne.xt campaign among the competitors for fame or fortune. He 
was a politician in the best sense, in that he loved his country, 
studied its institutions and policies, and put himself at its service in 
any phice where he was needed, but stopped short of blind partizan- 
ehip. Ills preference was for a private station. 

"On the 7th of June, 18G0, Mr. Ames was married to Rebecca 
Caroline, only child of »Tames Blair, of St. Louis, jMIssouri. Six 
childrt'U were born to them, of whom five are now living, namely, 
Helen Angler, the wife of Kobert C. Hooper of Boston; Oliver, 
who married Klise A. West of Boston ; Mary Shreve ; Lothrop ; 
and »b)lni Stanley." 




By the Hon. AVilliam A. Richardson, LL.I)., Chief Justice of the Court of Claims, 

Washington, D. C. 

TiiK Constitution of the United States provides that "the Senate 
shall have the sole Bower to try all Impeachments. When sitting 
for that Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the 
President of the United States is tried, the C'hief Justice shall pre- 
side." (Art. 1, sec. 3.) 

This is the only reference in tlie Constitution to the office of 
Chief Justice. Article 3, sec. 1, provides that "The judicial 


276 Chief Justice of the United States. [July, 

Power of the United States, shall be vested in one supreme Court, 
and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time 
ordain and establish," and in Art. ]^, sec. 8, that "Tlie Congress 
shall have power * * * : To constitute Tribunals inferior to 
tlie Supreme Court." 

The Supreme Court has never been established otherwise than, 
in tliis way, by tlie Constitution. 

Congress at its first session by the Act of Sept. 24, 1789 (1 
Stat. \j. 73), proceeded to establish the judicial courts of the United 
States, but did not establish the supreme court. 

Section 1 provided " That the supreme court of the United 
States shall consist of a chief justice and five associate justices " 
upon the assumption that the supreme Court already existed by the 
constitution, and established the salaries of the justices and the 
terms of the court. 

Section 2 divided the United States into tliirteen districts, and 
section 3 provided "'^I'hat there be a court called a District Court, in 
each of tlie afore mentioned districts, to consist of one judge," and 
section 4 divided said districts into three circuits and provided "that 
there shall be held annually, in each district of said circuits, two 
courts, Avhich shall be called Circuit Courts, and shall consist of 
nny two justices of the Supreme Court, and the district judge of 
such districts." 

Tims (he " chief justice " mentioned in the Constitution co\dd 
])e no other thiui the chic^f justice of the su])reme court of the United 
States, the only court expressly recognized and established by that 

^riie first chief justice, John Jay of New York, was appointed 
Si^pl. 'i(), 178!). He was (M)mmissiuned as " Chief elustice of the 
Supreme ('ourt of the United States." Va\v\\ of his suc('eHsors was 
appointed with the same title until 1888. They were:

Congress enacted, 1866, July 13, Ch. 210 (14 Stat. L. page 209) : 
" That no vacancy in the oflice of associate justices of the Supreme 
Court shall be filled by appointment imtil the number of associate Jus- 
tuses shall be reduced to six ; and thereafter said supreme court shall 
consist of a chief justice of the United States and six associate jus- 

This is the first time the deslOTation of " Chief Justice of the United 
States" appears in the statutes or elsewhere. 

The Act of April 10, 1869, ch. 22, provided that "The Supreme 
Court of the United States shall hereafter consist of the Chief eJustice 

1895.] Chief Justice of the United States, 277 

of the United States and eight associate justices." * ♦ * (^\q, 
Stat. L. 44.) 

It will be noticed that in this act the Ian gunge was changed from 
a chief justice of the United States in the former act to the Chief Jus- 
tice of the United States. A\'hen this was incor[)orated into the 
lievised Statutes the language of the act of 18GG was restored and 
the provision now stands : 

" Sec. ()7.'i. 'J'he Supreme (.\)urt uf the United States shall consist 
of a Chief Justice of tlie United States and eight associate justices, 
any six of whom shall constitute a quorum." 

The title of " (^hief Justice of the United States " in those acts seems 
to have attracted little attention for many years. A work by Henry 
Flanders, published in 181)1, entitled "The Ijives and Times of the 
Chief .Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States," makes no^ 
mention of that designation; nor does "The History of the Su})reme 
Court of the United States, by Hampton L. Carson, of the Philadel- 
phia Bar, and its Centennial Celebration, Feb. 4, 1890," published 
in 1892. The order of })recedence at that celebration, as published, 
was " The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, 
The Associate Justices," &c., and Mr. Arnoux, alone of all who spoke 
on that occasion, in his address of welcome used the statute desig- 
nation, beiiinnin^r "IVIr. Chief Justice of the United States and <i:en- 
tlemen, the associate justices of the Supreme Couil of the United 

It Avas certainly unknown to the Executive in 1874 when Chief 
Justice A\ aite was ap])ointed and commissioned with the same designa- 
tion as tluit of each of his predecessors. 

How much Chief Justice Chase had to do with the preparation of 
the acts of ISG() and 1H()9 cannot be accurately determined, and must 
be left to inference alone. He was always a watchfld guardian of the 
dignity and |>o\vei's of any oflice which he held.* When he presided, 
us rciiuired bv the (\)nstitution, at the trial by the Senate of the im- 
peachmeut of President J(»hnson in 18()8, he strenuously insisted 
that as presiding oflicer he should be styled "The Chief Justice," and 
in the otHcial record of the proceedings published in the " Supplement 
to the ( 'ongressi(M<al dlobe" he is so mentioned. 

I'he record states: "The court was organized on Thursday, the 
r)th dav of March, the ojith hoin^x administered to the Chief Justice of 
the United States by Associate Justice Nelson," and on each subse- 
(pient day of meeting the record begins, "The (^hief Justice of the 
United States entered the Senate Cyhamber and took the chair," 

• Mr. Clmse was ftppointcd Secrctiuy of tho Treasury in Marcli, 18GI. Up to that time 
nil tlie mimerou.s loan acts of tlu; GovernimMit from tlie l)cgiiining, without a singjie excep- 
tion, iiad providcil "Tluit the President of the United States be, and hercl)y is, autliorized 
to borrow on tlic credit of the United States," &c. Tliis formula was soon after changed 
to read, *• That the Secretary of the Treasury be, and lie is hereby, authorized to borrow 
on the credit of the United Suites," &c., and the same language was adopted in every loan 
act passed while ho was Secretary of the Treasury, and has eversince remained the formula 
in use by Congress.

278 Chief Justice of the United States, [July, 

The Senate took a different view of tlie matter and made rules for 
that trial in which he was atyled "The Presidini^ Officer of the Sen- 
ate," niul he was addressed as Mr. President, by Senators and by 
the Managers of the Im[)eachment on the part of the House of Rep- 

The official programme for the President's reception on New Year's 
day used to be in tliis form, after tlie Vice President and Cabinet and 
tlie Dl2)lomatic Corps : — 

"At 11.15 A.M. the Chief Justice and Associate Justices of the 
Supreme Court of tl)e United States, the Judges of the United States 
Court of Claims, and the Judges of the Su])reme Court of the Dis- 
trict of Columbia," followed at different hours by Congressmen, Army 
and Navy Officers and others. 

On one occasion Chief Justice Chase sent a messenger to President 
Grant requesting that the progranune be changed to such form as to 
make a more marked distinction between the Chief Justice and the 
Associate Justices. 

Tliis was in accordance with what he had previously told me. 
I remember a conversation with him about 1871, in which he 
called my attention to the cpiestion, and said I should find on investi- 
gation that tlie Chief eJustice was separate and distinct from the court, 
that, as he stated it, " the com-t was built u[) around the Chief Jus- 
tice." On account of that conversation and the su2:2:estion he made 
1 thereupon examined tlie constitution and statutes, and this article 
embodies the resuh, of my investigation. 

A practical settlement of the question was finally made in 1888, 
when, upon the death of Chief Justice AVaite and the selection of his 
successor, the statute title was followed by President Cleveland, who 
made the nomination in these words : "I nominate Melville W. Ful- 
ler, of Illinois, to be Chief Justice of the United States." That nomi- 
nation was confirmed by the Senate as made, and the connnission 
was draAvn in the same form. Thus Chief Justice Fuller is the first 
})erson nominated, confirmed, and conunissioned as Chief Justice of 
the United States. 

For the New Year's reception by the President in 1895 the pro- 
gramme was first changed substantially as suggested by Chief Justice 
Cliase more than twenty years before. 

It is not to be overlooked that in 1801 Congress established the 
Circuit Court of the District of Columbia to " consist of one chief 
judge and two assistant judges," unusual distinctions not before known 
in jiidi(M;il history. '^Phus eaily the creation of another chief justice 
was carefully avoided and the title reserved exclusively for the 
Chief Justice of the Su|)reme Court of the United States; and so it 
continued imtil 18(53, when the Supreme Court of the District of 
Columbia was established to " consist of four justices, one of whom 
shall be denominated as chief justice." Since then Congress has 
established other courts with a chief justice for each. The fact still

rcinjiins tluit tlic only court cstabliskod by tlic constitution is " one 
isupronio C'c^urt," and "tlu; CliieffJuyticc" clseuliorc mentioned tlieroin 
means the chief jnstico ot'tluit court. 

]\Iy conchision is tiiiit hotli titles are correct, or that neither is 
wrong". They arc synonymous. Whether a|)[)()inted Chief fJusticc 
of the United States or Chief Justice of the Supreme Coiu't of the 
United States, the ap[)olnlee is, in cither case, " The Chief Justice " 
mentioned in the Constitution. 1 think the more correct form of 
le<^^islati()n is that of the act of 18()9, which ])r()vides that the Supreme 
Court oi" the United States shall consist of The Chief Justice of the 
United States, tScc, rather than that of the act of 18G() and the Re- 
vised Statutes which ])rovide that the court shall consist of a Chief 
Justice of the United States, c^c. 

It is a singular coincidence that a like question has been raised in 
Kngland, and has been authoritatively settled at a comparatively 
recent date. 

Ijoi'd Russell, the present Chief Justice, in an article in the Sep- 
tember nund)er of the North Amzrican lieview of 1894, makes 
this statement in regaid to late Chief Justice (Joleridge, appointed in 
1880: — 

" It is notcwoi-thy that, whereas each of his predecessors had been 
described in his patent of oliice as Chief Justice of the King's or 
(Queen's Bench, he for the first time was described as ^Lord Chief 
Justice of iMigland.' " 

In answer to my inrpiiries, T havereceived the following letter: 

Royal Couuts of Justick, INTay, 1cS95. 

In reply to your letter of tin? 2.'{(l April J beg to say that the Judicature 
Act of 1H7.'{ is tim first Act of Rurliainent in wliicli tlic title " Lord Chief 
J\istice of Kiigliind " occurs. It cauuot be said to have exj)re8sly conferred 
th(? tiths l)ut nuher seems to rei-ogui/e it as existing, prohahly l)ecause Sir

to hold j>K»as l)cfore the ()ueen herself," that is Lord Chief Justice of tlie 
Quetn'b lU'Uch. 

More than tliis 1 am unable to ascertain beyond the fact, which I have 
stated in luy article, that F.ord Coleridge was the first Chit'f Justice 
<lesciihr<l in (he pal(*nt as l^ord Chief Justice of I'a»gian(L

due and in right belonging tlu?reto." 


Russell of Killowen. 

Notwithstanding the description in the ])atents of office the Chief 
Justices of the King's or (Jucen's Bench had been commoidy known 
from the earliest days by the present title, and Lord Campbell ])ub- 
lished, in 1849, without mentioning any other designation, "The 
Lives of the Chief Justices of England."

1805.] Daniel Uavenel of South Carolina. 297 


To recall the memory of departed worth is softly pleasiiif^, t!ion<;h a sad 
privilege. It is witli such feeliiii,'s that wo make record of" a beautiful life, 
which ended on the ^llh day of September, IMOl, iu Charleston, S. C. ; a 
life iu the sixth generation of a Ilugueuot family, honorably identified with 
South Carolina for more than two centuries. 

It is an interesting historical incident, that not only was the first effort 
to colonize Carolina, in 15(52, made by French Protestants under the truly 
great Coligny; but the earliest English purpose of founding a colony, 
between the Cape Fear and Port Uoyal, grew out of the desire of French 
Protestant refugees, then iu Kngland, to make a home ou — 

" Chicora's shore, where nature's hand 
Profusely spreads her choicest flowers, 
Where not a rock deforms the strand, 
Its groves of palm or myrtle bowers. 

* * * « 

But every charm that nature knows 

Shines freshly here — tlie towering trees. 

The sea, that sparkles as it flows, 

The flowering shrubs, the murmuring bees." 

It is not generally known, but is, nevertheless, an historical fact, that as 
early as the 10th of February, 1020, French Protestant refugees in Eng- 
land were in communication with Charles I. for planting a colony in what 
is now South Carolina, and that the patent issued to Sir Robert Heath,* as 
sole j)roprietor of this extensive region, grew out of the proposals of Soubise, 
Due do Fontenay, representing French refugees in England, whose name 
is indissolubly associated with Uocherie, France, and of Antoine de llidouet, 
IJaron de Sauce, his secretary. 

Iu 1030, a colony of h'rench Protectants actually Sailed from England for 
Carolina, and, as this most interesting record shows, iu the ship Maijjiower. 
Could it have been the same vessel that carried the Puritans to Plymouth 
Kock ? 

How mysterious is that strange fate which from a small circumstance 
changes the largest promised results! 

These unfortunate French colonist! were forced to endure further sacri- 
fices and disappointments. For some unexplained cause they were landed 
in A^irginia, and although the owners of the vessel were made to pay £000 
ilamages for the miscarriage of this hopeful voyage, it was insignificant, in 
comparison with the loss of an early and promising founding, forty years in 
advance of the Ashley river settlement in the Spring of 1070. 

If we have yielded at this length to the mention of the identity of the 
Huguenot refugees with Carolina, it is for the reason that it is a congenial 
topic, and has its j)roper signilicance and relation, as well socially, as his- 
torically; for the countrymen of Coligny have left their impress on their 
new homes everywhere in the western world, and nowhere more distinctly 
than in the land of the stately oak, festooned with grey moss, or wreathed 
with yellow jessamine, where the queenly magnolia scatters the perfume of

its wliito flowers, and tlio evergreen palmetto sentinels the shore, typical 
of hei'oic deeds. 

It is too a pleasant memory, that the Huguenots were among the earliest 
settlers under Charles Second's grant to the Eight Lords Proprietors, and 
that between 1G70-80 they were in numbers equal to the founding of a 
church in Charlestown, and that the lot at the south-east corner of Queen 
and Church streets in that city has been occupied since 1G80-81 by church 
buildings of the French Protestants. 

Among those who arrived in 1G85 was Rene Ravenel, who was born at 
Vitre, Bretagne, France, 2GLh Sei^tember, 1G5G. In 1G87 one hundred and 
eighty families arrived. These French emigrants and many others pur- 
chased lands from the numerous and powerful tribe of Santee Indians, and 
"lived in their midst with remarkable and continuous friendship, doing 
them no injustice or wrong." 

They cultivated the soil and their crops of rice, indigo, and ultimately 
cotton, and the production of naval stores, with which they were seemingly 
familiar, so improved their pecuniary condition that for moi-e than two cen- 
turies this element of Carolina population has been influentially identified 
with the life of that community. On a handsome mural tablet, in the 
French Protestant chuich, Charleston, in memory of one of the early 
settlers, this quotation is prominent: 

" The lines arc fallen unto nic in pleasant places and I have a goodly heritage." 

It was true of each and all of them. 

llene Ravenel married Charlotte de St. Julien, demoiselle de Meslin, oa 
the 24th October, 1687. She was a daughter of a French refugee. Of his 
sons, Daniel Ravenel, born in 1G92, lived at Sunmierton plantation, in St. 
John's, Berkeley, near the present "Black Oak" P.O. His wife was 
l{llizabeth Damaris de St. Julien, a native of Charlestown, whose father had 
emigrated from Vitre. 

At the Sunimerton plantatioji, the chief burial place of the Ravenels 
remains to this day. Daniel Ravenel of " Summerton " had a son — 
"Daniel of Wantout" plantation, born 4th May, 1732. His son Daniel 
was born 11th April, 17G2, died I5th August, 1807. He was the father 
of Henry Ravenel, born 10th October, 17i)5, who married Miss Flizabeth 
Peronneau Collin, born 21th F(.'bruary, 180G, who was descended from tho 
Collui and Amory families of Massachusetts. 

Daniel Ravenel was born on the oth September, 1834. He was edu- 
cated at the classical school of the late Christopher Cotes, an English gen- 
tleman of marked ability as a teacher, and subsequently graduated at the 
college of Charleston. He entered upon business life in the then widely 
known house of Ravenel Brothers & Co., his uncles conducting a very 
extensive business at home and abroad. 

This career was interrupted by the late war between the States. In the 
early months of the struggle he was on duty with tho Washington Light 
Infantry, and subsequently served with tho Marion Artillery. Of delicate 
physique, the exposed life in the raidcs of an ill-supplied army soon impaired 
his health, and he was assigned to office duty in the ordnance departmerit, 
where his business training made him most useful. He surrendered with 
General Johnston's army at Greensboro, N. C, and finally reached his 
native city, which had been slniLtered by shot and shell, and prostrated by 
the satn-itices of that calamitous period. Under such (Uipressing circum- 
stances he begun, with resolute purpose, the up-building of his broken for-

tunes. jMany old cstablislied commercial liouses had gone down in the 
general wreck, and now lines of busii.ess life had to he opened up under the 
most diiicoiirairiiiir enviionnieiit. Mr. Uavenel started in the insniance 
business in its several branches. Ilis high character, popularity and intelli- 
gent aptitude soon brought him a large underwriting business, which con- 
tinued during nearly thiee decades. Unlooked-for losses early in his busi- 
ness career overtook him, under peculiar circumstances, and through no 
fault of his. To his honor be it recorded that he devoted many years to 
the payment of these unexpected debts. No one ever lost a cent by him. 

Mr. Uavenel's life was closely interwoven with the venerable Huguenot 
church, of which he was one of the elders, and in which his uncestois had 
worshipped through previous generations. His time and purse were ever 
at its service. 

Though proud of his lineage, INIr. Ravenel was a lover of the soil which 
had sheltered the French exiles, ami for a quarter of a century was a true 
friend and supporter of the Confederate Home. Everything that was for 
the honor or welfare of his native State fouml a warm place in his heart. 
He might be well pictured in the poet's eloquent lines — 

** Love thou thy hind ^vlth love far brought 
From out the storied past, and used 
AVithin the present, but transfused 
Thro' future time by power of thought." 

In his select library could be seen every book or ])amphlet relating to 
South C'arolina or Huiiuenot history that was available on either side of 
the Atlantic. All the early maps, and rare plats of Carolina, he had also 
gathered up. His tastes weie all on refined lines. lie was well informed 
in numismatics, that seemingly attracts so few devotees, and yet is so in- 
structive aud so beautiful. His collection of book-plates was certainly the 
largest in number, the most valuable in rarity, and the most captivating, in 
the Soulii. These precious collections were not selfishly held — "lights 
hid uniler a bushel." Library, coins and medals, book-plates, all were open 
to their respective lovers, to make free use of them. How grateful now, 
these pleasant memories! 

INIr. Ivavenel identified himself with many useful local associations, and 
was an active Free Mason in that old fraternity. Typical of the ancient 
oriler, his sympathies were broad, and his active cooperation could be surely 
counted on for sweet charity's sake, o? for any worthy call in behalf of 
City or State. 

J\Ir. Kavcnel became a member of the New-Tumland Historic Genealo- 
gical Society in 187;'), and remained so to death. He manifested a strong 
interest in the objects of the Society, was a donor to its collections, and 
always a reliable and ready source for any information in his possession. 

He died 4th of Se[)teniber, 1894, on the eve of his GOth birthday, uni- 
versally respected and mourned by a very large circle of relatives and 

IMr. Ravenel married on the 24th January, 18G6, INIiss Harriet Parker of 
Columbia, S. C., who, with a son and daughter (the seventh generation), 
survivti him. 

Holding no public station, living strictly a private life, it is rare that so 
much of intrinsic worth is found in a single citizen, and of him it may be 
truly said — 

" Only the actions of the just 
Smell sweet aud blossom in the dust."

After the preceding wills at Liclifield came to light, further inquiry 
showed that the Garfields were settled at Church liawford in Warwickshire 
till towards the close of tlui last century, and by the kindness of the vicar 
of that parish, the Re\'. W. M. Wood, who took considerable trouble in 
extracting them, I am able to give all the Garfield entries in the registers 
there. The Garfields are now extinct in Churcli Lawford. !Mr. Wood, 
writing in 1890, says : " I can learn no more in the f)arish about the family. 
The oldest inhabitant, who is 90, never even lieard the name. The clerk, 
who is an old man, remembers an old saying that used to be current in the 
parish, nbo\it a man acting like Garfield Webb. Tho clerk did not know 
there ever had been such u person. But yon find that in the year 18J0 
Garfield Webb was buried, and between 1500 and IGOO the AVebbs and 
Garfields intermarried."

KMO. Dec. 22. Petition of WlUiam GarfuU and Euseby Woolfo, 
churchwardens of Upton, in the County of Northampton. Dr. Samuel 
Clarke, parson of St. Peter's, Northampton, sent one Pidgeon to Upton to 
cut the table, place it altarwiso in the chancel, and rail it in, and then 
directed them to pay Pidgeon for liis trouble, which they declining to do 
have suffered excommunication and loss. Pray that Dr. Clarke may be 
called upon to answer, and directed to restore the table to its original

IGIO. Dec. 22. Draft order that Dr. Clarke shall make a new table for 
the chupel of Upton at his own cost, and pay tho Petitioner's charges, or 
else appear to siiow cause to the contrary. 

In the eii^hteenth centmy some Garfields were connected with Gloucester- 
shire.* The feet of fines of ] 4 Geori^e IF., 1740, give a final concord re- 
lating to a messuage in Chipping Camden, in which AV^illiam Scott was 
plaintiff and John Garfield and his wife Eleanor deforciants. And in 1712 
administration to the goods of Henry Garfield, late of Dorsington, was com- 
mitted by the' Gloucester Probate Court to Elizabeth Garfield, his relict.

By EnwiN A. Hill, Esq., of New Haven, Ct. 

WiiEN^ tlie Strong Genealogy was published some years since, the 
etiitcnient was made on ])nge 1()1 that Isaae Jones of New Haven 
(son uC Deputy (Jovernor William), by wife Deborah Clark, had a 
son Isaac born 1G98 at New Haven, who resided at North Bolton, 
Conn., and died in 1782, and who was the fjither of Joel, born 
1721, and, through liim, the anceetor of the Hon. Anson Jones, 
cx-presidcnt of the Kepublic of Texas, etc., etc. 

This statement is incorrect. Isaac, the grandson of tlic Deputy 
Governor, was born Dec. 23, 1702, lived in Saybrook, and died 
there .Vug. 3, WT)!), and was one of the ancestors of tlie Saybrook 
I'amily; the other being his brother flames Jones, born Alay IG, 
1709, who died in Saybrook in May, 17G8. 

There was another Jones family in Saybrook, descended from 
Thomas Jones of Guilford, IGoO, who returned to England about 
1654. Of his four children, (1) Sarah married John Prat^t of 
Saybrook, June 8, 1665 ; (2) Samuel moved to Saybrook and 
married Mary Bushnell (who was undoubtedly one of the daughters 
of Deacon Francis Bushnell), where he had issue and perpetuated 
the name; (3) Nathaniel died at Branford in 1668, and (4) Thomas 
died January, 1651. I have never found proof of any relationship 
between Thomas of Guilford and De})uty Gov. William of New 
Haven, though such relationship is not impossible. JMrs. Amelia 
D. Stearns, of West Newton St., Boston, has for some time been 
collecting information concerning the descendants of Thomas Jones of 
Guilford, and has a fine collection of records pertaining to that 
family. •■

The fitatcmcnt in the Strong Gcnoalofry was criticizod in The 
New York Biographical and Genealogical liectH-d (vol. iv., page 
40) in the following language : — 

"Mr. Allyn S. Kellogg of Vernon, Conn., has e;ill.'<l my attention lately 
to the fact, which we discussed in 1861, that Isaac .Jones of Noi-th l^olton, 
Ct., was not a descendant of Depty. Gov. AVilliani .lones. ]\Ir. Savago 
shows (Gen. Diet. ll,r>Gl) that Isaac Jones, son of Isaac; of New Haven, 
was born "Dec. 23, 1702, and the Rev. Isaac Jones of Litchfield, Conn., 
himself a member of the New Haven family, when writing some years 
before 1850 to j\Iiss Sophia Jones, a sister of Hon. Anson Jones, ]\I.D., 
ex-president of the Republic of Texas, refei'red to this Isaac Jones, giving 
for his birth the same date given by Savage, and saying that he lived and 
died in Saybrook, and assuming that he was the grandlather of Miss 
Sophia Jones' father. Here begin the kinks in this pedigree, and the Hon. 
Anson Jones, JNI.D., though he saw the discrepancy, and tried to explain it, 
seems never to have found the true solution of the difficulty. He died 
Jan. 9, 1858, and from his papers his son Cromwell Anson Jones, when 
not more than 20 years old, took the defective pedigree, which he fur- 
nished to Rev. Mr. Dwight for the Strong Genealogy." 

When the late Alvan Talcott, M.D., compiled his manuscript 
Genealogies of Guilford Families (the original of which is now 
deposited in the library of the New Haven Colony Historical 
Society, and a copy of same with the town clerk of Guilford), he 
fell into this same error and incorporated into his record of the . 
descendants of Dcpt. Gov. AVilliam all of the known descendants 
of ]t;;uic of North Bolton. At a later date, however, cither himself 
or Konic other person has made entries on the INISS. in the N.H. 
Col. Hist. Society, to the effect that Isaac of North l^olton was not 
H desceinlant of Dep. (iovernor William, but of Lewis Jones of 
Watertown, iMass., and that Isaac of North Bolton was No. 25 of 
the descendants of Lewis in Goodwin's Genealogical Notes of 
Connecticut Families (see page 1^1)). j\Iy own descent is through 
the Saybrook lamily ; and in 1874 I spent several days visiting my 
great aunts — the ^Misses Harriet and Temperance Jones — in the 
old Jones homestead, near the railroad station in Old Saybrook, for 
the ])urpose of gathering up for future use all tiiat could be derived 
from their reconis, documents and memories pertaining to the 
genealogy and history of the Saybrook branch of the family; and I 
then made abstracts of documents which fully settle the question 
of the connection of the Saybrook with the New Haven family, 
(iulte recently a case came to my notice where a family of the 
name, misled citlier by the Strong Genealogy or the Talcott INISS., 
before they were corrected, traced back to Isaac of North Bolton, 
and confidently claimed descent from Den. Governor AVilliam. 
I have thought, therefore, that the present was a proper time to 
settle this question for all time. 

The following are abstracts made by me in Saybrook, in 1874,

Otlier documents could be giveu, but the two abstracted above 
settle the question fully, and enough is enough. It is not my in- 
tention now to give more than a very brief sketch of the descendants 
of Isaac and James of Saybrook. Mr. Timothy Jones of Dan- 
bury, Conn., (who is a descendant through ,[acob of Kidgefield), is 
co-operating with me in preparing for publication a genealogy of 
tlic descendants of Deputy Governor AViUIam Jones of New 
Haven, whicdi we desire to make as complete as possible, and I 
wisli to call attention to the fact and request all who claim descent 
from tlie Deputy Governor, whether of the name Jones or not, to 
forward tlieir family records to either i\Ir. Timothy Jones or my- 
self. I am also investigating the ancestry of the Deputy Governor 
and would be very glad to hear from any one who can throw any 
light, however small, upon this question, which we shall discuss in 
tlie genealogy. AVc have very little on the descendants of elames 
Jones oi' Saybrook, and I trust this article will meet the eye of 
some one of ids descendants who will conununlcate with me at once. 

Among the lines of the family not well traced out at the present 
time, and concerning which I would be very glad to receive infor-

Hannah, who was baj^tized l\Iarch 17, 1712, died before the will was made."

MARYLAND, 1648-1655. 

By Elliot Stone, Riverdale, N. Y. City. 

The following notes respecting tlie ancestry of tlie first Protestant 
Governor of Maryland, the forefather of Thomas Stone, signer of 
the Declaration of Independence, and many other distinguished 
men, may perhaps be of interest. 

Tlie "Archives of Maryland" show that in 1647 a power of 
attorney w^as given by Thomas Stone or Stones of London, haber- 
dasher, to his "cousin" (i.e. nephew), Capt. William Stone of 
Accomac, Virginia, to collect a debt from one Thomas AVeston, 
and a letter from AYeston to AYilliam Stone refers to tlie latter's 
"uncle." Governor Stone had resided in Accomac before he went 
to Maryland at the instance of Lord Baltimore, and Thomas Stone 
of Lonchm lived in " Cateaton Street," Aug. 10, 1647, at which 
time he was about 68 years of -age. 

The Visitation of London, 1633-5, gives this pedigree : — 

"Per Garter Segar in a large pedegree of 20 descents, but full 
of errors."

Arras, quarterly V^ &. 4"* (Stone) per pale or and sable a lion rampant count- 
ercliaiiged; 2'^ (Brickletoii) argent, on a chevron between three leopards' 
laces sable, as many mullets or; .'3'' (Girdler) azure, on a eiievion between 
three flours-de-lys argent, as many hurts; and an escutclieon of })retence 
(for Lufkyn), argent, on a chevron between three eagles displayed sable, as 
many mullets or. Crest: a unicorn's head sable issuing from rays or, 
maned and armed of the last, between two wings displayed of the fust. 

Burke states that these arms were granted by Segar, and Berry 
says "granted to Thomas Stone," and no doubt the crest was then 
granted, but that the arms are more ancient is evidenced by the 
fact that tlie Visitation of London also contains tlie pedigree of 
Andrew, younger brotlier of Thomas, showing the same arms 
(without, of course, the escutclieon of pretence for Lufkyn) and 
the note " respited for proof." 

Now, there is in ]\laryland, in the possession of a descendant of 
Gov. AVilliam Stone, a very old ring which displays the arms of the 
pedigree, viz. : Stone quartering Brickleton and (iirdler, but with- 
out any crest, as was not uncommonly the custom with ancient arms. 
The air of authority imparted by the absence of the crest is increased 
by the fact that, while the exact charges of the three coats are en- 
graved upon tlie ring, no tinctures are delineated ; for as the system 
of indicating colors and metals by lines and dots is said to have been 
introduced in England about 1640, it was probably not in general 
use for some years, and earlier rings would not show it. This ring 
would seem to indicate that 'J'lioinas Stone of the pedigree was the 
" haberdasher " of Cateaton Street, Avho was uncle of Gov*". Stone 
of iMarylaiid, and proof of this is afforded by "Marriage Licenses 
granted by Bishop of London, which include a license on April 9, 
1032, for Eichard Porter, Esq., and Martha, dau''. of Thomas 
Stone^ haberdasher^ of St. Lawrence Old Jury. Cateaton 
Street was in the parish of St. Lawrence Old Jury, and it seems 
a fair inference that Gov"". William Stone was son of one of the 
brothers of Thomas the haberdasher, and therefore a grandson 
of Eichard of Carhousc. Baine's History of Lancaster, v. 3, p. 
412, mentions John Stone, Esq''-' of Carr House, in Much Iloole 
parish, as a benefxctor of the church at Iloole in 1033, who was no 
doubt the ehlest son of Ivichard. "Twiste" mentioned in the i)edi- 
grec may be a corruption of Twiston also in Lancashire. 

Governor Stone had a sister, called l^ridget by some, who 
married Rev. Francis Doughty, and his will mentions brother 
Kichard, "natural brother" Matthew, brother Sprigg, and sons 
Thomas, Bichard, John, Matthew, a8 well as daughters Elizabeth, 
Catharine, Mary. AVeston's letter above noted, which is dated in 
1644, mentions a parcel of Tobacco which "your brother Mr. John 
Stone had of me many years past," and it would be interesting to 
know if Captain elohn Stone "of violent temper," who with Cap- 
tain Norton was killed by the Pequots on the Connecticut Eiver, 

31G United States Pensioners. ['^uly, 

was of the same stock. It is certain that he had been of Accomac, 
for William Cotton, the minister there and brother of Governor 
Stone's wife, complained to the Court Oct. 25, 1G34, that the ad- 
ministrator of Captain John Stone, deceased, had not paid tithes. 

Tliomas Stone, haberdasher, of S^ Lawrence Old Jury, was evi- 
dently in sympathy with the Puritans, for the "Calendar of State 
Papers " shows he was called before the Court of High Connnis- 
sion, and in 1G40 hia son in law, William Wheat, wrote to the 
Dean of Salisbury that certain foolish actions in Chester were 
without "privity of my father Stone." On March 2, 1634-5, 
Henry Whitlield wrote to Dr. Stoughton of Aldermanbury in re- 
gard to a curate whom he wished to em[)loy, and told Dr. Stougliton 
to send, if he could help him, to "Mr. Stone of Cateaton Street." 
There can be no doubt that this Henry Whitfield was afterward the 
revered minister of Guilford, Conn., and it is for future investiga- 
tion to show wlicther the [)reH('nce in (uiiliord of two settlers named 
Stone hnd any hearing upon the ac((uaintance of their leader with 
Mr. Stone; of Cateatoji Street, the uncle of Gov. Stone of jMary- 

In a later generation a curious coincidence is aiForded by the fact 
that the names of all the sons of Elias Stone of Charlcstown, Mass., 
(except lOlias,) John, William, Thomas, Kobert, and Ivichard, arc 
found in the })edigree above mentioned, but Mr. Henry F. Waters 
is a descendant of this family, and may some time elucidate this 
and other problems of the Stones of New England. 



Office, December 31, 183G. 

From LIB. CDIX: fol. 467-76. Essex (Mass.) Probate Registry. 
Copied by Geo. A. Goudon, A. M., of Somcrville, Mass. 

Be it re:\iemi5ered, tliat under the Act of the Congress of the United 
States, passed ou the seveiitli day of Jmie, A.l). l8o2, entitled "An Act 
snpplonientary to the 'Act for tlie relief of certain surviving odicers and 
soldiers of the revolution,* " commonly called the Pension Act of 1832, 
and the re<,ndations adopted by the Secretary of War for carryinc; into 
effect the provisions of said act, it being understood that the court of pro- 
bate of the county where tlie applicant for ])ension under said act may 
reside, is a court of recortl Avithin the meaning of said regahitions ; adjudi- 
cation was h;id on the applientions of the several persons hereaftt'r named, 
at the court of probate hohhMi on the day (s(>e note) set against their 
respective names, and the certllieate of the register of probate given on the 
same. And, as the regulations reijuire the original proceedings to be trans- 
mitted to the war department at Washington for liual adjudication, they 


United States Pensioners. 


were not preserved here ; but, on bcini:jccrtirKMl by the ref^ister, were given 
to the Revenil applicants, or tiieir respective agents or attorneys, lor that 

It may be proper to add that in ahnost every instance tlie applicant 
appeared in court in person ; though in a few instances his declaration "by 
reason of bodily inlirniity " was taken out of court by the judge, and the 
adjudication on the same, with the certilicate of the register, made at a 
subse{|uent term of the court. 

It may also be ad<hMl that in many instances the ])apers came back, after 
having been sent to the war (lej)artment, on account of some defect or 
informality in the proceedings. Such cases are marked with the date on 
which the rectification by granting a new certificate or otherwise was made. 

For ease of reference the names are given alphal)etically, and are all the 
cases acted on, unless some may have been accidentally omitted. 

The place of residence of each applicant at the time of a])plying is 
annexed to his name, and all are within the county, excepting one in an 
adjoining town. 

This is all the record of these proceedings in this office, of which the 
case seems to admit. 

The cases are contained in the following

NknV Tnokx to the l*imnATK IIkcouds. — The llcirlstry of Probate for the 
county of Suflblk has long served as a model of arrangement for other public 
oflices, and the improved system introduced there twenty years ago has since 
been adopted by otlier registries of probate. Tlie present year sees another 
lonii; stride in advance. Tlie new ind«!>:, which lias been so lon^ in preparation, 
is n()>v ready for use, and for liie llrst time in tliis C^onnnonwealth the searcher 
of pr()l)nl.e r(>eordM has a printed Index phuHHJ Ijefort^ him to aid him in his work, 
'riie iniportiuiee of Mils step will be readily understood by all who have occasion 
to eonsnll. such reeords. 

Thr new index Is a consolidation of the mamiscrlpt indices previously In use. 
Tt Is prhilcd ill larjjje clear nnd handsome type on paper made expressly for the 
puri)()se, in three large, tpnirto volumes, and covers the period from 1G3G to 

1895.] Notes and Queries. 839 

1893 inclusive. It has iKJcn propfirod iincler the supervision of Elijah George, 
register of probate and insolvency. Like tlie manuscript index previously in 
use it is arranged according to the Christian as Avell as the surnauK's of all per- 
sons ■\vliose wills have l)eeii probated or whose estates have been administered 
upon during iliat period, giving tlie year in ■wliieli the proceedings were begun, 
the nature of the case (i. e. %vhether a testate or intestate estate, guardiansliip, 
trust, etc.) and the docket nundx'r. It is a perl"eet key to the contents of the 
SuU'olk Probate Ollice with its G82 huge volumes of rt.'cords, the t)4,757 cases 
shown on its docket and the llles, which it is estimated will soon number a 
million of documents. 

A copy of this monumental Avork should be placed in every Prol)ate ofllce in 
the Stale. There is probably not a county in tlie C-ommonweallh where titles 
to real estate do not depend on some proceeding taken at some time or other in 
its history in the Probate Court for the county of Sullblk. 

The fortunate inception and successful completion of this great undertaking 
lead us to hope that the time is not far distant when all maiuiscript indices in 
public ollices will give place to printed volumes. The public convenience, tlie 
safety of the records and the progress of the age alike demand it.

Eauly Insurance of Animals Against Lightning. — The following docu- 
ment is, so far as I know, the first record of insurance of animals against light- 
ning, now so common. The original instrument I have presented to Mr. Charles 
W. Ilolden of 30 Congress street, Boston. It reads as follows : — 

" This agreement or covenant, made and concluded the first day of June, 1790, 
between Dr. Lemuel Buswell of Norwich [Connecticut] on the one part, and 
Ph. Ilolden- of Sd. Norwich on the other part — Witnesseth, that the Sd. Bus- 
well on his part hath this day deld. to the Sd. Ilolden, two three-year-old cows 
of a midling size and liigness, without calves, to ])e Sd. llolden's proper estate 
and theSd. Buswell dotli hereby warrant their Lives against Lightning and that 
only for the space of six years from the above date— Said Ilolden on his part. 
Doth promise, bind and oblige himself and heirs to Deliver to the Said Buswell 
four cows not less than three years old nor more than seven years old of a mid- 
ling si/.e and bigness, and to be Sd. Buswell's proper estate — said four coavs to 
be deld. to Saiil lius\vell or heirs at the end of (! years from tlie above date, and 
to b(! without calves — and for the true iierformancc! hereof We have hereunto 
intercjiangably set our hand ye Day and yer above writtiai.

SOMK AuTOOUAPiis IN A FAMILY RiBLK. — I havc iu my posses.sion a (luarto 
volume, formerly the property of Colonel Lemuel JiobinHon, of Dorcliestcr, i)orn 
17'M>, died 177(J (brother to my ;j^reat-<j:randmother Anna), in which th(;re are a 
few auti)i4ra|)hs of interest. Tlie volume contains the " Breeches Bible," im- 
printed at London by JRobert Barker, 1G13; the Booke of Common Prayer; The 
Ceneal()i;ies recorded m the Sacred Scriptures; and The Bool-;e of Bsalmes 
(Sternhold & Hopkins) ; bound in that order. A few pa.<j:es are missin<i^, and 
the bindini;- is distinctly xviii. century, or later. The blank page facing the 
opening chapter of the Apocryi)ha contains three autographs. 

1. '^'Sfandjasl Thankfall \ I'irown \ Her Book." The r of Brown is the Ger- 
man r; of Her, the modern one. Tluu'e is no date. 

2. Lt'innt'l JiohiiuHon \ His Book | Anno Dominij | 1748. 
Both the above are beautifully written. 

o. The third autograph is that of a skilful penman. It is evidently written 
by a person of mature age, accnstomcd to write much and quickly. I read it: 
"771 Bok Cristij," but this may easily be wrong. 

Chapter viii. of I'Jsdras has on the margin in excellent script: 

4. " Ilopt'MUI ffosWr I His Book \ 1(178.'" This is Hopestill'- (d. 1717) son of 
JlopesliU^ Jui.stcr (d. 1()7G). The linal ?• is the (Herman r. 

On tlie blank page facing the l)eginniug of the New Testament, the youthful 
Robinson (then 12 years old) repeats his autograph and the date (1748) inside 
the outline of a heart; and his name (extremely neatly -written) occurs on vari- 
ous margins also. On the border of. the tlrst cliapter of the llrst ICpistle to the 
Thessalonians, there is written, in a crabbed mature hand, what I take to be : 

5. ".V JCriir' 

Finallv, on page 38 of the Psalms iu Metre is written, in a boy's hand :

LoK'Kii, Daniicl, Newton, DiiArEU. — John Loker of Sudbury, Mass., married 
Mary Draper, and he died June 18, 1053. . In his will he refers to Robert Daniel 
as his broilun- in law, and to Robert's wife as " Sister Bridget l);inier'; aiul he 
also rclers lo " Sister NcnvIou." 

Robert Danii'ls was in Watertowu before 1(!30, and his wife Kli/.abeth <lied 
0(!t()ber 2, l()13. May 2, 1(>5I, he inariied widow R(Miua Andre\vs. ]]c. died 
June (I, 1(;55. Ivcana surviving him, and he left live children, namely, Kli/.abeth, 
wife of 'J'homas Fanning, Samuel, Joseph, Sarah and Mary; most of tlunn, per- 
haps all of them, bt^lng then minors. 

It would seem, tlujreforc;, that betweep the death of his wife Elizabeth and 
his marriage with Re'ana, llobert Daniel married Bridget Loker (or Draper), who 
died between June 1()53 and May 1054. 

The estate of Nathaniel Sparrowhawk of Cambridge, 1()47, owed somewhat 
to Ivobert Danicd; and Kicliaid Newtou oj; Siull)nry was a debtor to the estate. 
[IvKtiisri'.i:, vol. vli., p. 175, ] 

I should bo glad to know more of the antecedent history of the families of 
John Loker (whose mother may have been widow lOlizabeth Loker, who d. 
March 3, 1048) and of John Loker's Avifo Mary, born Draper.

Apropos of the Loker family it may be well to make record in the UKGisTrcit 
that the romantic story of the courtship of John Loker's dauj^hter Mary and 
Jonas I'roscott, as told in the Military Annals of Lancaster, is merely romance. 
One of the parents there said to be violently opposed to Mary's marriage, 
died before Mary was born.

town clerk of Bridgewater, from 1051 until his death, Oct. 31, 1081. Mrs. Gary 
died in 1080. About that time John, jr.,"'^ and David^ Gary went to Bristol, and 
their sister Mehetal)le appears to have gone there to live with them, after the 
death of her father. 

Eliashib'' Adams, jr., died in Bristol in 1098. The will of EUashib Adams, 
carpenter, of Bristol, was oM'ered for probate at Taunton* Aug. 2, 1098. It 
was witnessed by David and .John Gary and Benjamin Jones. In his will he 
names wife Mehrtable, and children Eliashib, William, Lydia and Mehetable. 

The chiUIren of Eliashib and Mehetable Adams were, according to Bristol 
town and church records :— 

1. Lydia.-* -born Jan. 17,, 1091, bap. Dec. 22, 1095.

Widow Mehetable Adams married second, in Bristol, Dec. 5, 1700, Miles

Hamilton Andrews Hill, A. M., LL.D., of Boston, died very suddenly 
April 27, 1895. The distinguished services which he has rendered to this 
Society, and the high position which he attained as a historian and a man of 
letters, make it proper for us, at this tlrst meeting after his death, to do honor 
to his memory. 

He was tlie son of Hamilton and Anna Andrews Hill, and was born in Lon- 
don, A[)ril M, 1827. The family can be traced back to the sixteenth or seven- 
teenth century in English history. Clement Hill, of Taddington, England, was 
married in 1040. Ilngh Hill was baptized in IGGf. His son William was bap- 
tized in 1098. William Hill of Exeter, the second of the uaiiie, was baptized in 
1720, and the third AVilliani was baptized 1759. His son Hamilton was the 
father of our late associate. \\\} was formerly a merchant in London. In con- 
sequence of his well known .synii)athy with the cause of anti-slavery in the 
United States, he was invited to come to America, and take the position of 
treasurer of Oberlin College, at Oberlin, Ohio. . He accepted the position, and 
brought his family to this country. He 'ivas treasurer of Oberlin more than 
twenty-five years, and during those years he exerted great influence in the 
Western Reserve, entering vigorously into various movements then in progress, 
for social and political reform. 

Ills oldest son, Hamilton Andrews, reccivod his early education in the pub- 
lic schools of London. After the family came to America he studied for a time 
at the College in Oberlin, Ohio. He left before completing the full collegiate 
course. In 18-19 he entered business in Boston as a shipping and commission 
merchant. Later he was a member of the commission house of Sears & Hill. 
In 1807 he was made Secretary of the Boston Board of Trade, and held the posi- 
tion till 1873. He was Secretary of the National Board of Trade from 1808, for 
more than twenty years. He was Commissioner on European Emigration, of 
the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad, from 1873 to 1875. He was a mem- 
ber of the House of Representatives from Boston, frcnn 1878 to 1881, serving 
as Ciialnnan of the Connnittees on Finance, and on Harbors and Tublic Lands. 
In 1878 and 1879 lie was a member of the Board of State Charities. These honor- 
able po.silions which he tilled show not only the great ability of Mr. Hill, but 
his public spirit, and his devotion to the best interests of this city and of his^ 
adopted country.

Ifls later years, of comparative leisure from business, have been given iu 
lari;e part to literary pursuits, lie was a line historical scholar, witli a wide 
and accurate knowledge of New England history, and a real interest in the 
Puritan age. As he did not have the advantages of a theological training, he 
was perhaps unable to appreciate at its full value the tlieology of the fathers of 
Now England, and to write as discriminatingly as a theological expert might 
liave done in regard to tlieir religious views. But the massive volumes which 
he lias left are invaluable contributions to the religious history of New England. 

lie Avas the author of a number of historical pamphlets, some of which he has 
read at the stated meetings of this society. lie was the author of an important 
chapter in The Memorial History of Boston, on the Trade, Commerce and Navi- 
gation of Boston, 1780-1880. His two most important works are: A Memoir 
of Abbott Lawrence, a book of 243 pages, published in 1883 ; and a History of 
the Old South Church of Boston, published in 1890 in two large volumes, which 
contain together about 1300 pages, and cover the period from 1G69 to 1884, The 
life of Mr, Lawrence was suggested by a sketch which Mr. Hill was appointed 
to prepare for a volume of our Memorial Biographies. The History of the Old 
South was prepared from the original records. After he had written several 
chapters of the lirst volume, an important MS. came to his knowledge, during 
a visit to New Haven, which made it necessary to rewrite a large part of the 
history. It is a monumental work, and shows the great historical ability of the 
author. It will always be consulted as one of the most accurate and reliable 
authorities relating to our history. 

Dr. Hill was a member of tlie American Philosophical Society, Vice President 
of the American Statistical xVssociation, Treasurer of the American Social Sci- 
ence Association, a Director in tlie Bostonian Society, a member of the Massa- 
chusetts Historical Society, and of a number of otlier similar associations. He 
was elected a resident member of this society May 4, 1870, and became a life 
member in 1801. He was a member of the Board of Directors from 1887 to 
1880, and a member of the Council for three years following. He served as 
Corresponding Secretary from 1887 to 1889, and as Historiographer from 1889 
to his resignation iu 1802. His contributions toward the memoirs of our 
deceased members were numei*ous and valuable. 

Tiie (h'gree of A.^f . was given him at Obcrlin in 1807. The next year Williams 
College gave liiin the same degree, and in 1803 or 1804 the University of 
Pennsylvania gave him tlie degree of LL.D. 

He was married in Uoxbury May 4, 1859, to Miriam Phillips, daughter of 
Sanuiel AValley. She died in 1802. His second marriage took place May 27, 
18()0, with Anna Frances, daughter of Charles Carruth.

tinued until ho left the bar for the bench in 1873. He was a member of the 
Constitutional Convention, from Barre, in 1853, and was a representative from 
Worcester in the State Legislature in the years 1800 and 18G7, and took an active 
part in the debates and business of the House. In 1802 he was Mayor of

the purity of his character and to the usefulness of his life. Mr. Warren said : 




352 I^ecrology of Historic Genealogical Society, ['Tuly, 

" Mr. SaltoriHtall was one of the most true-hearted, honest, genial men in Ameri- 
can politics. He so liated anything tliat was mean or corrupt tliat his vigorous 
indignation could not be controlled in the presence of anything savoring of dis- 
honesty. A thorough gentleman, of the old school type of maimers, he was 
loved and respected by all who knew him, and he filled a place in Massachusetts 
that few can occupy." 

He married, October 19, 1854, Hose S., daughter of John C. and Harriet Lee. 
They had six children, live of whom survive hira. 

John rATiiiOK Puendergast, B. A., of Dublin, Ireland, a corresponding 
member of this society, was born in Dublin in 1808, and died February 6, 1894. 
He belonged to an ancient and distinguisbed family, which has furnished a 
succession of eminent men, useful in civil and military life, and in literature. 

He was graduated by Trinity College, Dublin, 1825, and was called to the 
Irish bar in 18:50. In 183(» he was appointed agent of Lord Clifden's Irish 
estates, a position which had been lield l)y his father and his grandfather l)efore 
him. 1I(^ deti'rmlned early in his life to employ his leisure in some liistorical 
pursuits connected Avith his professional work. In 184G he was asked to make 
some researclies concerning the pedigree of an Anglo-Norman family in the 
County of Tipperary. This opened tlie way for him to give his attention to 
the settlement of Ireland at the time of the restoration, after the overthrow of 
the Commonwealth. To do this it was necessary to study theCromwellian set- 
tlement, and this opened the way to a series of historical researches which he 
continued until a few years before his death. The story is told in the preface 
to the llrst edition of Ids great Avork, The Cromwellian Settlement, published 
in 1805 (see Kikjistkh, page 2;)(i, 18(;7). The same year Mr. Prendergast was 
made Master of- the liolls, to select, for transcription, the ofiicial paj)ers refer- 
ing to Ireland, from the Carte manuscripts. In this work he was associated 
with Dr. KusscU, the President of Maynooth College. The two worked together 
until 1877, when Dr. llussell was disabled by an accident. Their report, pre- 
sented in 1871, is full of interest and information. 

In 1808 he published The Tory War in Ulster. In 1887 he published Ireland 
from the Kestoration to the Kcvolution. 

His main interest lay in a certain epoch of Irish history. His knowledge of 
the history of Irish families Avas equal to that of any one in the country. He 
was also an authority in archajology. 

In politics hu was a Liberal all his life. He desired reform for Ireland, and 
believed that the disestablishment of the Church and the amendment of the 
laws relating to the tenure of land would reoove the causes of complaint in 
Ireland. He was therefore a staunch Unionist, believing that the British Par- 
liament alone could rule Ireland properly. 

He was a friend and admirer of INlr. Lecky, and an antagonist of Mr. Froude. 

He left one son, who has become a naturalized citizen of this country. By 
his will he bequeatluHl to the King's Inn Library a score or more of manuscrii)t 
volumes concerning those periods of Irish history in which he was especially

since 1870, was born in Gloucester, Massachusetts, September 1, 1812, and died 
at Savin Hill, Dorchester, August 20, 1894. 

The family traces its descent frojn Peter Collin of Brixton, County of Devon, 
England, who died in England in 1028. Tristram, his eldest son, was ))orn in 
Brixton in 1G05. He married Dionis Stevens, and in 1G42 emigrated to America, 
■with his large family. He lived alternately in Salisbury, Haverhill and New- 
bury, until 1G59 when he removed to Nantucket, where he died in 1G81. His 
grandson, Peter Collin, came from Newbury to Gloucester in 1G88, and occupied 
a tract of land that his father had purchased. His grandson, also named Peter, 
lived in Gloucester from 1747 till his death in 17'JG. He was one of the leading 
citizens of the town, an active patriot during the Revolutionary War, and the 
principal acting magistrate in town for many years. William Cofiin, his son, 
born in 175G, was an esteemed physician in Gloucester for nearly half a century. 
Edward Langdon Cohln, son of Dr. William, was a shipmaster in Gloucester. 

His son, William Edward Collin, was educated in the schools of his native 
town of Gloucester, and engaged in business in Boston. He became identified 
Avitli the great iron industry, in the days when the city was aglow with the light 
of funuice (ires. He was easily the foremost iron manufacturcu* of Boston, 
energetic, enterprising, liberal and i)0{)ular; and he amassed a large fortune. 
He was a principal owner in the Boston Machine Company, the Pembroke iron 
works, and the Eranconia iron works. He became one of the merchant princes of 
lloston. By a series of mlsfurtunes, which were due rather to the changes in 
the course of the iron business than to any fault or failure of his own, he lost 
his I'ortune, and lived in narrow circumstances, through a i)eacefid and lionored 
old age. IIi; bore the strange reverses of fortune -with remarkabh; fortitude, 
and continued to the eiul the same brave, kind-hearteil, loyal and loving gentle- 
man, that he had been in the more prosperous years. 

He was one of the early anti-slavery men, a personal friend of Garrisou, 
Phillips and Sumner, and a generous contributor to the cause of freedom. 

He married JVlarguretta Cotton, daughter of Joseph Cotton, June 18, 1840.

foreconipletlnijjliiscourso there, February 18, 1851, to be employed in tlie office of 
the Clerk of llie Courts of Essex County, the olllce being then held by Kbenezer 
Shilhiber. As an assistant to Mr. Sliillaber and after Avards to his sueeessor, 
lion. Asahcl Huutinii^ton, lie reeonnnended himself by an eJllcient and conseien- 
tious discharge of his duties. In 185!) he became book-keeper to a IJoston llrm, 
Batcheltler & Breed, doing a large business in shoe findings, with -wliom he 
remained several years, carrying more than the usual labors and responsibilities 
of such a position on account of the absence of tlie senior member of the firm 
in the army. When this lirm dissolved he removed to Salem, and after an 
interval became the manager of the olllce of the Salem Frcss, doing a printing 
business, especially in the lines of scientific and historical literature. This 
brought him into close relations with Dr. Henry AVheatland, the well-known 
genealogist, antiquarian, and President of the Essex Institute, and with I'rof. 
Frederic \V. Futnam the distinguished archa;ologist. AVhile in the ofiice of the 
Clerk of the Courts he rendered valuable service for history and genealogy " by 
transcribing, or rather translating," says Abner C. Goodell, Jr., Esci., "the 
obscure chirography of the early records of Essex County, particularly the 
file of the witchcraft trials. The copy of the latter now used in the clerk's 
oincc is in his handwriting; and to him W. Elliot Woodward was inde])ted for 
the 'copy' for his 'Record of Salem Witchcraft,' &c., printed in 1804." Mr. 
Patch also contributed to the Historical Collections of the Essex Institute, ex- 
tracts from the first book of records of births, marriages and deatlis for the 
town of Saleuj, and similar records for Lynn, besides abstracts of wills, inven- 
tories, &c., from files in the ofiice of the Clerk of Courts in Salem, and a copied 
list of deaths in the East Church of Salem, from 1785, recorded by liev. Dr. 
Bentley. His large acquisitions made in these seldom traversed ways of research 
caused him to be much consulted as an authority in genealogical matters, by 
members of Essex County families for a dozen miles around ; and to his trust- 
worthy accuracy and thoroughness many family histories are greatly indebted, 
"notably the most recent, Dodge genealogy "; while his own family lineage 
was traced out both lineally and in its branches, Avith marked care and to unu- 
sual fulness, as the store of material collected and left by him amply testifies. 

Mr. Patch was by nature of quiet and retiring habits, and he gladly devoted 
to his home all the time that he could reserve from the daily exactions of busi- 
ness. He courted publicity neither for himself nor for the results of his labors. 
From his church and social obligations, however, he withheld neither time nor 
service. As a member, first, of an orthodox church, and afterwards of the 
Wesley (Methodist) Church in Salem, he was easily and naturally recognized in 
those fellowships as one on whom it w^as suitable to lay large and responsible 
ofiicial trusts. Fond of music, he took especial satisfaction in the choir service. 
For any duty required of a faithful citizen, any sympathy asked for a moral, 
social (U' charital)lo enterprise, he could be counted ujjon. 

Mr. Patch was married to Harriet JMillett Jackman, June 27, ISGl. Of their 
five chiUlren only two (daughters) are living. Two sous of promise have died : 
the elder, Harry Hamilton, under specially painful circumstances, having been 
drowned, August 10, 1880, at the age of eighteen. H(i Avas the eldest, born 
August 23, 1802. Lizzie Millett Avas born September 14, 180-1; Ira EdAvin, born 
May 2, died October 13, 1878 ; Hattie llust, born July 3, 1870, died the same day;

In 1855 lie was chosen to the oHlce of town treasurer, and served ins town in 
this capacity for a period of forty years. He was town clerk upwards of thirty 
years, and for thirty-three years was connected with the Middlesex Mutual 
Eire Insurance Company of Concord, both as agent and director. Mr. Foster 
was also trustee of the Lowell Five Cent Savings Bank, and tlie last of the 
original trustees of Ilowe School, appointed by its founder Dr. Zadoc Howe. 
He was for many years the respected treasurer of tliis institution, and by his 
strict integrity, his devotion and faithfulness to every trust committed to him, 
he readily won the esteem and confidence of his townsmen, was repeatedly 
chosen to office, and became the custodian of many private as well as public 
properties. Gen. B. F. Butler and Hon. Thomas Talbot were numbered among 
his intimate friends and life-long acquaintances. During the civil war he 
visited Washington on important business for the state and town, and in 18G8 
was (;lect(Hl ri^presentativo to the LegLslature.

land, in 101)2, and took up a grant of land on the Concord Kiver, two miles to 
the north of Billerica Centre. Asa Follard, llrst to fall at Bunker Hill, was a 
member of this family. 

The children of Mr. Foster, by his first marriage, are, Frank D. of North 
Audovor, and John Howard Foster of Jiillerica. August 28, 1884, he married 
Mary Alice Tarker, daughter of Daniel Farker, M.D., of Billerica, who survives 

By nature Mr. Foster was of an even temperament, in manner quiet and unas- 
suming. He inherited, no doubt, the sturdy (lualiLies of his New England 
ancestry — mens sana in corpore sano — and was seldom known to be out of 
health or in ill humor. His simple habits of life were conducive to health and 
happiness. In early manhood he possessed a fine tenor voice which gave him 
prominence In the local church choirs and musical circles. 

Along with gardening, always a favorite pastime, he cultivated his taste for 
literature, read with avidity the leading rnagazines and ncAvspapers, took a 
lively interest in questions of political and historical importance, and in this way, 
even to the latter days of his life, kept himself well informed and abreast of the 
times. He was elected a resident member of the N. E. Hist. Gen. Society 
April G, 1878, and was a constant attendant upon its regular meetings. He 
attended the annual meeting of the society in 1804:. His death occurred suddenly 
January 3, 1895, and his burial took place the Sunday following, with quiet 
ceremony, from his late residence, the homestead of the Foster family, in Bil-

in business at Arnlicrst and had an equally successful career, as colonel in the 
militia, representative to the legislature, town o/llcial and justice of the peace. 

Mv. Means's education was obtained in the common schools of his native town 
and at the Piukerton academy at Dcrry, N. H. At the age of llfteen he came to 
Boston and served as a clerk in mercantile business for seven years. His apti- 
tude for his chosen life-work, an inheritance from an unusually capable ancestry, 
immediately gave him prominence among the young merchants of Boston, and, 
when the Auioskeug Manufacturing Company NNas established at Manchester, 
N. H., he was elected clerk. He accepted the situation, romovetl to the ncAV 
city, and there remained in active discharge of imi)ortant duties till 1850. in 
1851, he resignetl his clerkship and became treasurer of the Manchester (N. II.) 
Locomotive \\''orks, which he hehl till his death. While a citizen of Manches- 
ter, Mr. Means served as an alderman of the city and as its representative iu 
the legislature. In 1858, he was elected treasurer of the Salmon Falls (N. II.) 
Manufacturing Company. As the duties of these treasurerships made his busi- 
ness largely in Boston, where the ollices were located, Mr. Means removed his 
residence to Andover, Mass., and ultimately to Boston, where he died on the 
4th of Jaiuuiry, 1804. In 1882, being elected president of the Salmon Falls 
Manufacturing Company, he resigned the treasurership of that corporation, 
lie was for many years a director in the New England bank. 

Mr. Means was elected a member of the New-England Historic Genealogical 
Society, March 5, 1873, and a life member in 1882. From 1884 to 1880, he served 
the Society as a director. 

Prominent and influential as Mr. Means was in the field of business, as a finan- 
cier, and in the management and disposition of large monetary interests intrusted 
to him, wherein his integrity and fidelity walked hand iu hand with his industry 
and sagacity, he was endeared to his frierds by his generous impulses and his 
nnselllshness. He Avas a well informed observer of public events; well read in 
the history of his country and her public men; unswerving in his devotion to 
the predominant political party of his section; earnest for the establishment of 
sound ethics in the popular niind ; and ready with his service and his purse to 
forward measures which he conceived to be just. This Christian gentleman 
exhibited a diligence in business, a wisdom in charities, a friendly regard for 
all beneficiaries, which made his acquaintance and friendship dear to many who 
will cherish his memory so long as life endures.

age of twenty-two, and graduated in 184G, in the class with Charles Eliot Nor- 
ton, George F. Hoar, Fitz-lCdward Hall, and many other, since famous, men. 
He soon after entered tlu; Harvanl Medical School, from which he graduated 
in 1850, and soon entered upon his practice as a physician, and continued in 
practice till his death. Dr. Eastman was active in i)ul)lic allairs in various 
directions. He was a llepuhlican in politics, and represented his ward. No. 17, 
in the Legislature in 1882 and 1883. He was induential in educational matters 
also, and served on the School Comniitteo for eleven years. He was interested in 
the charitable work of the city, and was a member of the Board of Overseers of 
the Toor for three years, and held the olllce of Dispensary riiysician for live years, 
and of Warden four years. He Avas also a director of the Howard Benevolent 
Society, and a distri])uting agent of its charity for more than thirty years. He 
was deeply interested in historical studies, and was faithful in his attendance, 
and useful in his service to this Historic Genealogical Society. He was also 
a life member of the Webster Historical Society. Ever ready to take i)art in 
the advancement of moral and religious life, he served in the Old South 
Church as Superintendent of the Sunday School for six years, was an active 
member of that church from 1857 to his death, and held a life membership in 
in the Young Men's Christian Association, and the American Sunday Scliool 
Union, He was tenderly anci reverently attached to his pastor. Rev. Dr. 
George A. Gordon, whose visits and kindly ministrations in his last days were 
a great comfort to him. He was Chaplain of Mass. Lodge of Free Masons for 
many years. He was an earnest advocate of all real civil and social reforms, a 
member of the Mass. Total Abstinence Society, and an cdicient oHlcer of the 
Law and Order League. 

In these- various directions of activity Dr. Eastman was always helpful, 
holding his positions for service and not simply for the honors. Honorable 
tribute to his memory is paid in the Necrology of the Congregational Chib for 
1892, and he will be long remembered by many outside his own social circle and 
family, \\\\o have been helped by his hand and cheered by his counsels. 

Dr. Eastman married Mrs. Clara Augusta Eastman of Chelsea, widow of Mr.

of George and Abigail (Hanson) Clark. She survives hin). He has one sou

The original edition of this valuable work was published ii^ 1831, sixty-four 
years ago, at Clarksburg, Virginia. Mr. Thwaitcs says in his Preface to this 
edition: " The author was a faithful recorder of local tradition. Among his 
neighbors Were sons and grandsons of the earlier border heroes, and not a few 
actual i) the later wars. He had access, however, to few contem- 
porary documents. He does not ai)pear to have searched for them, for there 
existed among the pioneer historians or the West a respect for tradition as the

prime flonroe of information w)iich does not now obtain : to-day we desire first 
to see tlu! docuuictits of the period, and c;ire little for remiiiiscences, save when 
it fills a .Ji:ai) ill or illmniiuites the formal record." Mr. Thwaltt;s adds : " The 
weakness of the traditional method is well exemplified in Withers's work." 

The defieiences of Mr. Withers's work have been amply snpplicd by the late Dr. 
Lyman C. Draper, wliose life-loni^ and snccessful work in collecting materials 
for Western history is well known. In 1890 he was em^ai^ed by the Robert 
Clarke Company to prepare and edit a new edition of Withers. As " the best 
livini^ anthority on the details of Western border history," he was well (jujili lied 
for the task, lie bei^'an his work with interest, bnt on tlie 2Gth of Anijust, 1891, 
he died leavinuc the Avork nntiiushed. He had written the memoir of Withers 
and had prepared the notes for about one qnarter of the work. 

Mr. Tliwaites, Correspondin<r Secretary of the Historical Society of Wiscon- 
sin, in which ollice heis Dr. Draper's successor, was selected to finish his work, 
and see the edition through the press. This l>e has done in a thorough and highly 
satisfactory manner.

" Three years ago," writes the editor in the preface of this work, "a book 
illustrMtlng the attractions of the village was conceived," and " as no one could 
be found to coutril)ut,o an adequate historical sketcli, the "writer reluctantly 
nssuuuul the task." That he faithfully carried out his conception, both in the 
illustrations and the history, the book before us gives ample evidence. Illus- 
trations of the choicest bits of Florence scenery, mingled with the likenesses 
of the men and women who have made Florence what it is, are profusely scat- 
tered throughout the book. The first chapters, devoted to the settlement and 
earl_v history of the place, exhibit the result of considerable research. The book 
begins to be of more than local interest in the seventh chapter, Avhich treats of 
the mulberry fever and silk enterprise. The history of the Northampton Com- 
munity, as given by INIr. Shefield in chapters eight and nine, forms an important 
contribution to the history of socialism in New England. Part two of this 
work consists of reminiscences of old Community times, the religioiis and edu- 
cational history of Florence, biographies, and sketches of the present industrial 
interests, written by various authors. The book is neatly printed on good 
paper and nnikes an attractive volume. L. II. G. 

Itcport on Canadian Archives. By Douglas Buymxer, Archivist. (Being an 
Appendix to Report of the Minister of Agriculture.) Ottawa. 1883-1893. 
11 volumes. 8vo. Various pagings. 

In 1871, at the re(]nest of a large number of writers and other interested per- 
sons, the Canadian Parliament establislunl under the direction of the INIinister 
of Agriculture a department of Historical Archives. Mr. Douglas IJrymner, a 
native of Scotland but for many years a resident of Canada, was selected to organ- 
ize the new department. The choice of an archivist was an excellent one. Mr. 
Brymner began with empty rooms in 1872, and in less than a quarter of a century 
has brought together an exceedingly valuable colh^ctiou. 

Copies of the Haldinuuul Papers form the most important part of Mr. Brym- 
ner's collection. Tiie original papers, in 232 volumes, were given to the British 
Museum in 1857. They wert; gathered by Sir Frederick Haldinuiud while (Gov- 
ernor and Commander-in-Chief of Canada (1778-1781), and are made up largely 
of correspondence and documents relating to the period of the Revolutionary 
War. The material in this collection is of as much value to the historians of 
the United States as to those of Canada. 

The liou([uet Papers — a collection of 30 volumes, also in the British Mtiseum, 
— have also been copied. These papers cover the period from 1754 to 1705, and 
contain nundi InfornuUlon about. nou(juet's military operations. The State 
Papers of Upper and of liO\Yer Canada, with a large amount of" miscellaneous 
mailer, make u|) l\\o balances of the ('Canadian Archives. 

The annual reports of the archivist consist chiefiy of calendars of the above 
nu;nti(;ne(i papers.

Besides the catalogues of the Trustees, the Teachers, and the Students of 
Lawrence Academy for the lirst liundred years of its existence, the M'ork before 
us contains accounts of the celebration of its ninetieth anniversary, June 21, 
1883, and of its centenary, June 17, 161)3. The academy -was organized and 
opened early in 1793, and was incorporated by the State of JNIassachnaetts Sep- 
tember 25 of that year. Its roll of graduates includes the names of many -who 
have been distinguished in the various "Nvalks of life. 

On the 25th of Kel)rnary, 181(1, the name of tlie Institution was changed to 
the " Lawrence Academy of (Jroton," liberal donations having been received 
from the brotliers, AVilliam and Amos Lawrence, of Boston. 

At the first celebration in 1883, an Alumni Association was formed, with Dr. 
Samuel A. Green of Boston as president, and Judge William A. Richardson of 
Washington as lirst vice president. The association has done much to bind the 
scattered graduates together and to increase the prosperity and usefulness of 
the academy. The speeches at both these celebrations were worthy of the 
theme, and revived many reminiscences of earlier days of the institution. Among 
the present oHicers of the Association are the Hon. Byron B. Johnson, of 
Waltham, w^ho is president, and George A. Sanderson, Esq., of Littleton,

We have here, in convenient form, certified copies of the joint resolution of 
the New Hampshire legislature; the report of the Massachusetts Commission- 
ers, covering the agreement with the authorities of Ncav Hampshire and of Ver- 
mont; the joint resolution of the INlassachusetts legislature; and the report of 
the I\lassaclnisetts surveyor. In connection with the earlier reports of 1887, 
1889 anil 1891, it presents a full history of the negotiations, discussions and 
contentions relating to the northern boundary of jNIassachusetts, as dcv^Teed 
by the king. The value of the surveyor's report would have been increased if 
he IkuI given the full names of gentlemen, whom he records as Mr. Cromacks, 
Mr. Howe, ISlr. AVhithed and the late Mr. Belding. 

A pliotograph of the monument, erected on the site of the boundary piue, can

Lontlon : 2-1 Bedford Street, Strand. The Knickerbocker Press. 1894. 8vo.. 
pp. ix.+293. 

This book shows the result of exhaustive research, and the careful comparison 
of the facts obtained. It would be well if there were more such clear, exact' 
aud definite contributions to the liistory of our country. The author not only 
gives an interesting account of his ancestor, Major-General John Paterson, but 
his work takes a much wider scope than that of the biography of a single man; 
it is in many ways a valuable contribution to the history of the Kevolutionary 
War, throwing as it does much light upon the great struggle for liberty. It 
seems to me that this period of our history cannot be too fully dwelt upon by 
our historical writers. It was a time of momentous importance to our fore- 
fathers, and also to the world at large, for this great struggle for independence' 
again enunciated the grand principle of civil and religious liberty (the inherit- 
ance of all English-speaking peoples) contained in Magna Charta, and which 
then seemed in danger of being swept away. As all our colonial history leads 
up to the Declaration of Independence, so the continual ve-assertion of the 
l»rinciple of liberty (of civil and religious freedom under the law of the land) 
therein contained is the only Hafeguard of our continued existence as a free and 
independent nation.

The Fuhlished Becords of Midway Church. Vol. I. S. W. Murray, Newnan, 
Ga. 1894. 8vo. pp. IGG. Edition, 150 copies. Price, $1.50. 

The Midway Church, a Congrcgatioualist society, whose records are here 
printed, is a perpetuation of the colony that left Dorchester, Mass., in 1G95, 
under Rev. Joseph Lord, and settled in South Carolina at a place near Charles- 
ton, which they named Dorchester. A letter to Judge Sewall from Rev. Joseph 
Lord, the pastor of the church, dated " Dorchester in Carolina, May 25^, 170G," 
is printed in the RkuIvStich, vol. xiii., pages 299 to 300. There is an unprinted 
diary extant kept by Elder William Pratt, who was a member of the Dorches- 
ter S. C. Church, but after several years' residence there returned to New Eng- 
land and became pastor of the church at Eastoii, Mass., where he died in 1713. 
The diary is in an almanac printed in 1G91, and now belongs to Prof. Joshua 
Eddy Crane, of Bridgewater, Mass. 

In 1752, the church and colony removed to Midway, Liberty County, Georgia. 
The records here printed begin in 1754. They are edited by Rev. James Stacy, 
D.D., pastor of the Presbyterian church at Newnan, Georgia, a son of the Mid- 
way church. Dr. Stacy says : "As the original Records of the Carolina church 
seem hopelessly lost and the Midway records begin simply with an account of 
the persons received, we have no means of determining, with anything like 
accuracy, the precise number of the original members." The church celebrated 
its centenary, December G, 1852, an account of which is printed here. Dr. 
Stacy has added much other historical matter relating to the church and colony. 
We understand that if sudicient encouragement is received he will print a second 
volume co!itaining the remaining records, and also write a fuller history of the 
old eluireh. We commend the work to New England readers, who will And 
much of interest in its pages. " The Dead Towns of Georgia," by Hon. Charles 
C. Jones, LL.D., printed in the fourth volume of the Collections of the Georgia 
Historical Society, noticed by us in July, 1878, contains muck information about

$1.50 (not tlio price given in our notice in the April number). Sold by the 
author, Fair Haven, Vt. 

We continue in this number our quarterly notices of recently published works 
relating to genealogy. 

The first book whose title appears on our list is Dr. Benjamin A. Gould's fine 
volume on the Gould family. Dr. Gould began his researches on the history of 
his family over forty years ago. During that time he has been indefatigable in 
his researches, employing mucli of lu^s leisure on the work. Town, church and 
county records in New I'inghuid, as well as English records, have been labori- 
ously and extensively examined. In 1870, belore leaving for South America 
where he spent Ufteen years, he prepared an abstract of the infornuition then 
acquired, which he left with Dr. Henry Wheatland, president of the Essex Insti- 
tute, in the Collections of which Society it was printed in instalments and in 
1872 appeared as a pamphlet of 100 pages. Since his return to this country he 
has continued his investigations, Avhich he has preserved in the volume before 
us. He has traced the ancestry of Zaccheus Gould to Thomas Gould of Bov- 
iugdou, Ilertfordsliire, Avho was born probably not later than 1455. Many 
details about the family in England have been secured. The descendants of 
Zaccheus Gould have been quite thoroughly traced and are here printed. Other 
families of the name are appended. The book is clearly arranged and well 
indexed. It is handsomely printed and is illustrated by facsimiles of ancient 
documents, and a map showing the land of Zaccheus Gould in Topsfleld and 
houses of other early settlers. The book is an admirable one and Dr. Gould 
has done a noble work for the family. 

The Marsh Genealogy, the next on our list, is also a superior genealogy. The 
author, llev. Dwight Whitney Marsh, D.D., of Amherst, Mass., has been a long 
time collecting raaterals relating to the name, and he has had the assistance of 
the ;Marsh Family Association, of which, for several years, he was president, 
and the proceedings at the gatherings of which are printed in this volume. The 
book makes a beautiful volume of over Ave hundred pages. Much labor has 
evidently been bestowed upon it, and the result is a very thorough record of 
the descendant of John Marsh, the stirps of this family, and a considerable 
amount of information about the name in England. The book is well indexed. 
It is illustrated by eighteen tine engravings, of wdnch sixteen are portraits. 

The next book is by Lieutenant Kipley, U. S. N., author of the IngcrsoUs of 
Hampshire, noticed by us in April, 1894. This volume gives the ancestors 
of Lieut. Thonnvs Tracy, the emigrant ancestor of the New lOngland Tracys, 
but not his ilescendants. INluch research has evidently been bestowed upon it. 
'JMie author shows that the Norwich settler inherited the blood of iminy historic 
families and of many pronunent personages in the various walks of liTo. 

The Breed Genealogy is by J. Howard Breed, of Philadelphia. It is a well 
compiled and well printed volume of over 200 pages, and contains a good record 
of the descendants of Allen Breed, an early settler of Lynn, Mass. One of 
these descendants resided at CharlestoAvn and gave name to the Hill on which 
the engagement generally knoAvn as the Battle of Bunker Hill was fought. Th'e 
))t)ok is well indexed. 

The IMaltby-IMorehonse book was* prepared by the late George Ellsworth 
Maltby of New Haven, who Intended to endjrace in it genealogies of Bogart 
Morehouse and Brown, besides Maltby, but his sudden death i)revented his

flnishln,!? more than the portion rclatinj:: to Maltby, a limited edition of which 
lias ])cen privately printed for -his Avidow, Mrs. rjeor;:fia Lord (Morehouse) 
Maltby. VV(i hope that Mis. Maltl)y "will see tliat the nuitcrial coll(!Ct(!d for the 
other thrcu! parts Is c()in|)[eted and puhlislied at some future time. The book is 
■\Yoll compiled and makes a hanilsonu; volume. It has a j^ood index. 

The " items of Ancestry" by Mrs. Ida M. Robiuson, of New York city, con- 
tains the lineage of tlie autlior and her husband in twenty-two fandlies, namely : 
Robinson, Frost, Akerman, Jackson, Tuttle, Otis, Bailey, Nutter, Pickering, 
Adams, Bass, Alden, Slierl)urne, Ivnight, Chapman, Tracy, .Stanl)ery, l)e(Jroot, 
Steele, Thacher, Partridge and Fuller. Tlic book seems to be carefully compiled, 
evidencing careful and comprehensive research, and i)resents a very large 
amount of new matter of value and interest to a large circle of readers descended 
from tlie various families. It is Avell printed, and has an unusually full index. 

The work on the Macra fandly was, as stated on the title-page, written in ITO-t 
and transcribed in 178G. This pamphlet was printed a few years ago at the 
private press of Colin Macrae, of Camden, S. C. Appended is a brief account 
of the fandly of Dachmaluack. Much interesting matter is pri.'served here. 

The leatlet on the Achnagart fandly was also printed by Mr. Macrae, of Cam- 
den. It is dated June 1, 187H. 

The Pierson pamphlet, we are told in the preface, "represents the work of 
over tAventy-llve years, in whicli the author has given to it all the time he could 
ypare" from his business. It is a valuable work. 

The llawes ])am|)hlet, M'hich is an addkjss before the New York Cenealogical 
and Biographical Society, preserves much information about the llawes family 
and particularly about Edward llawes, an early settler of Dcdham, Mass., and 
his descendants. It is well written, handsomely printed and is embellished 
with a tine portrait of Lieut. Joseph IlaAves, who served in the Revolution. 

The ll.irtwell pamphlet is by the author of the Ilaud-Book of the Ilartwell 
Genealogy, published in 1887 and noticed by ns at the time. ISIr. Densmore 
intends to prepare a history of the llartwcils, Avhich will make a volume of about 
one thousand pages. Tlie price will be $10. Subscribers are reipiested to send 
^5 witli their subscriptions, tlie balance to be paid subsequently. We hope he 
will have a large list of subscribers. 

The (JrecMiougli and Israel pampldet is by Franklin Piatt, of Philadelphia. It 
is " sti'ictly conllned to the direct ancestor in each generation, brotluu's and 
sisters and their descendants being entirely ignored." It is well written and 
well printed. 

The next work, the pamphlet on the Stowart, Elliott and Dunwody families, 
is an interesting account of those families, with a brief notice of the Stacy 

The next pamphlet, on the Bellinger and De Veanx families, is by the same 
author as the last, Joseph Gaston Bulloch, M.D. Like that pamphlet, this is a 
well "written performance. 

The Thomas pamphlet is a reprint from the Register for April 1895, as is 
also JMr. Williams's pamphlet, " Correction in the Pedigree of the Cotton Family." 
The FitziKMi als. Phippeu pampldet is reprinted from Mr. Waters's Gleanings in 
the same number.

Tlie name qf Pickering is found flourishing in London at least one hundred 
years ))efore the emigration to New Eni>;land; also at tliat period and still later. 
The name frefjuently appears in the parish registers of London, printed by the 
itarleian Society, and the Visitation of London gives a brief pedigree of one 
branch of the family. 

There were two Jolm IMckerings here in New England who founded families, 
viz. : John Tickering of rortsmoutii who is said to have settled there in l(\'S'6, and 
John rickering of Salem, of whicli place he was admitted an inlia])itant "7 of 
12 mo. 1G3G." John Tickering of Salem was a carpenter and was l^orn in 1G15 
and died in 1G57. We do not lind the date of birth of John rickeriui^ of rorts- 
moutii, but we infer that it occurred not far from the time of liis contemporary. 
In tlie middle and southern states Ave lind that the name existed at a somewhat 
later date. There Avas a Charles IMckeriiujj who was a mercliant of riiiladeiphia 
in 1G81>, and there were persons of the name in Charleston, South (Carolina, in 
the early part of the last century-f There was also a family of Pickerings 
settled in the ])arish of St. Lucy, Barbados, sometime befon; A. 1). 1700. A 
re[)resenlative of this family, the iiev..)osei)h Piekeriii,i4of,Wickham, llamj).sliire, 
England, corresponded witli Col. Timothy Pickering on the sul)ject of the family 
history and claimed kinship when he found that the Salem family and his own 
used tlie same coat-of-arms. 

The above will of Edward Pickeringe, of course, is only suggestive. From it, 
it appears that in 1623 his son John Pickeringe was a chihl and probably was 
born not far from 1G15, the date of birth of John Pickering of Salem in New 
England. nAiausox Ellery.]

[Archdeacon lvo1)ert Johnson, the testator, was tlie founder of Oakham and 
Uppuighani schools. The grandchild, Isaac Johnson, named in the ^vill, Avho is 
made one of the executors, was an Assistant under the Massachusetts Colony 
Charter. He came to New England, in IGoO in tlic Arbella, named in honor of 
his wife Arbella, daughter of the third Earl of Lincoln. Lady Arbella died 
soon after her arrival in New England, and her husband died not long after, 
Sept. 30, 1(330. Extracts from a paper by Isaac's father, Abraham Johnson, of 
Cambridge, Eng., late of South Lullenhara, giving details of family history, are 
printed in the Ukgisteh, vol. 8, pp. 350-62. A tabular pedigree will be found 
in the same volume, page 358 ; and also in the Ilarleian Society's publica-

Joshua Winthrop (Imrn July 10, 1550, died March, 1G20) was eklost son of 
William Winthrop, uncle of Gov. Jolin Winthrop of Mass. (For a letter of 
this AVilliani Winthrop to Foxe, the martyrolo^ist, see 1 Proccediims Mass. 
Hist. Soc, vol XV., pp. 2G2-3.) Joshua Winthrop, like his father before him, 
was in business in London, where he married Anne, daughter of Vincent Nor-

rington, mercer, and subsequently settled at Bandon, in the south of Ireland, 
where he died. He left at least one child, " Joshua Winthrop the youni^er, of 
The Midchells, near Bandon, gent.," who administered his father's estate in 
April, 1G2G, one "Thomas Harrison, gent.," joining in the bond. Nothing 
more has been ascertained concerning this younger Joshua Winthrop, but the 
Irish branch of the Winthrop family is supposed to descend from h'.m. 

It does not appear which of those two Joshua Winthrops is the one referred 
to as " brother-in-law " in the will of John Whittingham, 1619 ; but it was prob- 
ably the elder Joshua, and it would seem that one or other of the wives of 
Whittingham must have been a Norrington. 

It may be added that ti»e elder Joshua had a brother, Adam Winthrop, fourth 
of tliat name, and two sisters — Elizabeth, wife of liev. Humphrey Muniiing, 
Hector of Brettenham, co. Siidblk, and Sarah, wife of John Frost, of Bury St. 
Edmunds. The last named sister is recorded to have died in 1(J03, so that she 
could not have been "Sara my nowe wife," mentioned by Whittingham in 

1611). llOBEllT C. WiNTIIltOP, Ju.]

[Pedigrees of the Hunlock or Hunlocke family of Wincjerworth may be 
found in Ilarl. MSS. 1093, 1153, 148G, 1537 and 21G1, Add. MSS. GG70 and G674 
and Egerton MS. 99G. They differ so much as to be rather unsatisfactory. The 
pedigree i>;iven in Harl. MS. 1153 shows that Christopher, )3rother of tlie first 
Henry (wlio was buried at Wingerworth 20 October 1612 and whose will I liave 
noted) had sons Thomas, Philip, Nicholas, Henry, Edward and Christopher. 
Of these Thomas married Judith daughter of William Denham of London, and 
had issue John, Denham and Thomas Hunlock. No Francis is given, and this 
statement is confirmed by the will of Henry Plunlocke the elder (just referred 
to) who in IGIO speaks of John, Denham and Thomas as the three sons of " ray 
cousin Thomas Ilunlocke." As the Heralds' Visitation was made in IGll, the 
year after the date of that will, I would suggest that Francis Hunlocke, the 
painter sLainer of London, though probably a brother of Johu, Denham and 
Thomas, was not born until after that pedigree was entered. IL F. W.]

re-numbered and re-paged since I examined them. The present reference to 
the following pedigree is Stowe MS. vol. G70, fo. 230.]

Genealogical Gleanings in England. 


[Tliis pedigree (which shows a tricking of the arms of the family on the 
margin) was evidently furnished to the College of Arms, in the year 1700, by 
liichard Cary of London, whom I suppose to be the second son of Shershaw 
Car}* of Bristol by his lirst wife Mary Scrope. Tlie names and ages of the 
chiUiren of John, Richard and Tliomas I have not tal<en off. Of the wills 
which I have given, those wliich directly bear on tliis pedigree are tiie wills of 
Kobert (1G28) and Walter (1G38), brothers of our James Cary of New England, 
and of Henry Ilobsou (1G3(>) and his great-granddaughter Alice Cary (IGGO), 
referring to the Virginian line. The other wills, however, seem to me to re- 
fer to the same stock, and from them I venture to construct the following 
tentative pedigree :

Besides the Cary pedigree from the Stowe MSS. already given, I found another 
in the same volume (Stowe ]\IS. 670, fo. 229), evidently relating to the same 
stock and also of interest through their connection with Virginia. It was con- 
structed the very same year (A.D. 1700) as the other. I transcribed the most

OCTOBER, 1895. 


- By Bradford Kingman, Esq., of Brookline, Mass. 

Gen. Edward Augustus Wild, the eon of Dr. Charles and 
Mary Joanna (Rhodes) Wikl, was the second son and third child 
of his parents; born in Brookline, Norfolk County, Mass., Novem- 
ber 25, 1825. At the time of his birth his father had entered upon 
a successful career in medical practice, having graduated from the 
Harvard Medical College in Boston. In 1818 he took up his resi- 
dence in Ih'ookline, at lliat day a small but thrifty farming conunu- 
nity. 7Vt iirst he became an inmate of the family of a Mrs. C/roft, 
on AV^ashington street, who, upon finding the young doctor was suc- 
cessful in his profession, gave him about two acres of land on the 
south side of the same street on which she resided, and nearly oppo- 
site her residence, on which he immediately erected a dwelling- 
house, it being the elegant ground and mansion adjoining on the 
east, the well-known "George Baty Blake estate." Here he con- 
tinued in practice for about forty years, when the same passed into 
the hands of Dea. William Ijincoln, and later to Stephen D. Ben- 
nett, Esq., and now owned by the heirs of Arthur II. Blake. 

It was on this beautiful spot, lavished by nature with beauty, and 
cultivated by man, that the subject of our sketch, whose name is at 
the head of this article, first saw the light of day. His early youth 
was passed under the influence of a christian home and careful train- 
ing, and, not unlike many others in his day, brought up to habits 
of industry, attending such schools as the town afforded, and the 
classical school on Boylston street. He fitted for college under the 
private instruction of Dr. Samuel Rogers of Roxbury ; entered Har- 
vard College in 1840, graduated in 1844, having among his clase- 

VOL. XLIX. 35 


40G Edward Augustus Wild. [Oct. 

mates the following persons : John Call Dalton, Professor of Phy- 
siology and Fellow of the American Academy ; Benja#iin Apthorp 
Gould, LL.D., Professor of Astronomy ; Francis Parkman, LL.D., 
Historian ; Hon. Leverett Saltonstall, the late Collector of the port 
of Boston; Prof. Daniel D. Slade, LL.B., now Professor of 
Zoology at Harvard College, and his friend Tappan P^ustis Francis, 
M.l)., of Brookline. 

He received the degree of A.B. In due course, and A.M. in 1847 ; 
studied medicine witli his father and in the office of Benjamin Eddy 
Cotting, M.D., of Roxbury, also at the Harvard Medical College 
in Boston. He also took a course of medical study at Jefferson 
College, Philadelphia, Pa., where he received the degree of M.D. 

Pie began the practice of his profession in Brookline in 1847, and 
became a member of the INIassaclmsetts INIedical Society May 23, 
1850. Aiming at the highest honois in his profession, he crossed 
the Atlantic in 1848 to visit the schools of Europe, attending lec- 
tures and the practice of hospitals in Paris. While there he started 
on a pedcstrianizing tour through Italy and Switzerland. Italy at 
that time was torn with a tlu-eefold war ; Pome was contending 
against Naples ; then came the invasion and occupation of Pome 
(which had then been temporarily a Republic), while the north of 
Italy was in active turmoil and strife against the Austrians. At the 
Romano-Neapolitan frontier Dr. Wild was arrested and closely 
searched by the troops on both sides of the line, each taking him 
for a spy for the opposite side. 

At Terracina he was taken before Garibaldi, then in command, 
who very quickly discerned his true character and liberated him. 
At Forli in the Romagna he was arrested as an Austrian spy, 
mobbed and roughly maltreated, and had a fortunate escape with 
his liie. On Lake Garda he was arrested at midnight as a robber, 
ai\d up the River Po seized as a deserter from the Austrian army, 
aiul liad many other exciting experiences, some neither safe nor 
agreeable. The experience he met with during this excursion gave 
him the first ideas of the horrors of war and the destructive effects 
of battles and bombardments. 

On the first day of ^January, 1850, Dr. Wild returned to Brook- 
line and resumed the practice of his profession as a homoeopathic 
physician, where, with his enlarged experience and sujierior qualifi- 
cations, he soon displayed proofs of the maturity of his talents. 
Here he continued till ffune 12, 1855, at which time he united in 
marriage with l^^rances l^^Ueii, daughter of John AVhiting and Marian 
(Dlx) Sullivan of Boston, and upon learning of a declaration of 
war in the Crimea he immediately takes his bridal tour, sailing 
direct for Constantinople. Inmiediately upon his arrival at that 
port he tendered his services to the Turkish Government, and re- 
ceived a commission as (Hekimbashi) Surgeon of Artillery, with 
the rank and pay of lieutenant-colonel, and assumed the name of 


1 81)5.] JUdwurd Aaguslas Wild, 407 

"Kliolousay Bey." In the oourriC of liis professional duties he vis- 
ited tlie ports of Sanitioun, Sinoiib (Sinope), Trcbiz^iid, Butoum, 
Kedoiit Ivjileli (Kemlial), Kaleli. 

He was attached to the army corps of Omar Pasha, Coinmaiider- 
iu-Chief of the Turkish forces in the fiehl, and passed tlie winter 
near Sokhouni in tlie foot hills of the Caucasus, occupying the hos- 
pital buildings captured from the Ivussians. After peace was 
arranged he continued in charge of extensive hospitals for several 
months at Trebizond, where were gathered the numerous sick and 
disabled, the residuum of the war. On leaving the service, in addi- 
tion to the war medal (Sefer Nishani) he recei^'ed from the Sultan 
Abdul .M(;djid the decoration of the Medjidieh, with its accompanying 
Berat (diploma), together with an autograph letter from Omar 
Pasha, recommending him for that high honor. 

After a long tarry at Constantinople, Dr. Wild, accompanied by 
his wife, visited Trebizond and the banks of the Bosphorus, and 
the gulf of Nicomedia (Isnikmid), the islands in the INIarmora 
(Prinkipo), and the Troad. Keturning homeward he visited 
Greece and the Isles of the Archipelago, stopping at Malta (where 
he was initiated into Free Masonry, taking three degrees in " St. 
John's Lodge"), Sicily, and a long time in Italy, in 1857. 

Inunediately upon his arrival home he resumed the practice of 
his profession, in which he was successful, and Avas fast growing in 
popularity, giving to the public the benefits of an extended experi- 
ence in military liospitals, as well as the more complete study of 
medicine in the hospitals at Paris. 

For ten years prior to the breaking out of the war of rebellion, 
Dr. AVild had a natural fondness for military drill and had been an 
active member of the Independent Corps of Cadets in Boston, and 
had never missed a single drill. When the demand came from the 
government for men to assist in protecting our country from the 
assaults on the liberties of the people, the doctor was not only fully 
prepared, but he eonnnenced to prepare others for actual service in 
the held. 

Dr. AVild was a highly intelHgent gentleman, and had a full 
appreciation of what nuist ensue at an early date. A full company 
was raised, of men mostly from Brookline and Jamaica Plain, 
through the efforts and instrumentality of Dr. Wild, who was com- 
missioned as captain of the same by Governor John A. Andrew, 
May 22, 1861. In this service the captain was assisted by the 
untli'ing zeal and patriotism of two of Brookline's noble young men 
who were fired with military ardor, and these three men did the 
country valiant service. We need only mention the names of the 
two who assisted in recruiting men for the army — Col. William L. 
Candler, who received a first lieutenant's commission May 25, 
18G1 ; and Col. Charles L. Chandler, a second lieutenant's com- 
mission on the same day. The lust named became a captain in the

Thirty-fourth Regiment August 6, 1862, lieutenant-colonel of For- 
tieth llegimcnt January 24, 1864, and of the Fifty-seventh Regi- 
ment April 20, 1864. Lieut. Col. Chandler, wliile fn battle near 
Hanover Court House, fell mortally wounded May 24, 1864, and 
was kindly cared for by Col. Harris of the Twelfth Mississippi 
Regiment, and was buried near the scene of action. The Grand 
Army Post of Brookline perpetuates the name of Col. Charles L. 
Chandler . by naming the same in his honor, while the other grand 
soldier. Col. Candler, merited the warmest praise and the regards of 
his countrymen for his various and arduous services to his country. 
He became a colonel and member of the staff of the famous General 
Joseph Hooker, with whom he was on the most intimate terms of 

The company above mentioned was entitled Company A, and 
formed a part of tlie First Massachusetts Regiment of Volunteers, 
and was tlie first company and the first regiment of the three years' 
troops from the loyal states to go to the seat of war. The head- 
quarters of this regiment at first was in Faneuil Hall, Boston, from 
May 25 to June 1, 1861, when they removed to " Camp Ellswortli," 
in Cambridge, and afterwards, June 13, again removed to "Camp 
Cameron," and on the following day received orders to march. 

The Brookline company were all ready for service, and anxiously 
waiting for orders. 

On the afternoon of June 15, 1861, the regiment took up its 
line of march for Boston with the thermometer at 80 degrees, the 
men dressed in thick soldiers' 'uniforms. The scene on the com- 
mon in Boston on that memorable day, is still vivid in the minds of 
thousands of persons who were present ; the parting of friends, the 
shaking of hands, and the farewell, make it seem as almost of 
yesterday ; now the drum calls, every ear attends. The regiment 
marches to the Providence Railroad station, where Alderman Pray 
presents them with a liandsome national banner in behalf of the 
citizens of Boston. At nine o'clock p.m. seventeen finely decorated 
passenger cars with four baggage cars, drawn by two powerful loco- 
motives, started on their journey amid the wildest enthusiasm. At 
Providence, they were saluted and welcomed by a detachment of 
the Marine Artillery. Arriving at Groton, Conn., they embarked 
on the steamer "Commonwealth." Here the guns of "Fort Trum- 
bull" poured forth their welcome. Arriving at Jersey City on 
Sunday afternoon, they proceeded to the seat of war, passing 
through Baltimore on the 17th of June, being the first regiment 
that had passed through that city since the attack on the Sixth Regi- 
ment the 19th of April previous. At twelve o'clock on the 21st of 
June, the regiment formed in column and marched up the Avenue 
and were reviewed by President Lincoln, and went into " ('amp 
Banks" on the Potomac. On the 17th of July, the regiment 
formed a part of the Army of Virginia and were in advance, to

attack tlie enemy. After being engaged in the battles of Bull Run 
and Willianisburgh, and several lesser combats, including the siege 
of Yorktown, Captain AVild was permanently disabled by a bullet, 
in tlic right hand which was badly sliattcred, in the battle of " Seven 
Phies," on the field of Fair Oaks, Ya., June 25, 1 8 02. Keturning 
to INIassachusetts, he cuukl not remain idle ; the fire of patriotism 
was still burning within liim, and in a short time he reported for 
duty. He was j)laccd in conunand of "Camp Stanton," a camp of 
recruits at liynnficld, Mass., and while there was promoted by regu- 
lar grades to Colonel of the Thirty-fifth iVlassachusetts Regiment of 
Volunteers, August 20, 18G2. Only two days later, there having 
been a demand for fresh troops at AVashington, he returned to the 
ca})itol, with his arm in a sling from his wounds, at the head of his 
regiment. His fine appearance on horseback, as he passed through 
the streets of Boston, is well remembered by the writer. Nothing 
of particular interest occurred on the journey from Boston to the 
seat of war, except the following incident at Philadelphia, which 
we give from the Colonel's own report to the Governor of ^lassa- 
chusetts : 

"III the immediate ueighborliood of the Union Volunteer Refreshment 
Saloon, where we were sii{)plied with a meal by the hospitality of the citi- 
zens, there are a large number of drinking shops, which have been a pest 
to every regiment passing tlirough. I personally ordered the proprietor of 
each establishment to sell no liquor to my men, vvai'ning him of consequences ; 
at the same time setting a guard at his door. Soon after, detecting them 
enticing men in at back doors, to drink and fill canteens, I ordered the 
stock to be cleaned out at two places, a hotel and a saloon. The order 
was sunmiarily and thoroughly carried out by my men. No serious per- 
sonal violence was committed, although we had occasion to overawe a large 
party of Zouaves and other bullies. The police followed me with two 
writs of arrest, which I declined to accede to; but warned them that, if they 
caused lis any delay, I should ho obliged to take aldermen and all with me 
to Washington. All this, not from any wanton disrespect for municipal 
law, but on the ground that, in time of armed rebellion, the exigencies of 
the military service must take precedence of all else." 

Nothing was ever heard from this afterward, although the Colonel! 
was followed to Washington. In three wrecks' time he was in front, 
of the enemy, in ]\Iajor General Burnside's Corps, and engaged iu. 
a fierce battle at South jNIountain. At half past four in tlie after- 
noon, Se[)tcmbcr 14, 18G2, he was ordered to clear the extensive 
forest of sharpshooters, a very rough groimd. While engaged in 
this work, they were unexpectedly attacked upon a position held by 
their brigade, in the dusk of the evening. It was here that Colonel 
Wild lost his left arm by the explosion of a shell, badly sluittering 
the same, which was amj)utated at the shoulder, after three surgical 
oi)era(ions. On that day, and three days later, his new regiment 
distinguished itself by their steady bravery, worthy of veteran

troops. General Schouler writes : " Few, if any, surpass the 
Thirty- fifth Eegiment, especially in its officers." 

When Colonel Wild had partially recovered from the loss of his 
arm, he retm-ned home, December 1, 1862, and while recovering 
from liis wounds assisted Governor An(h*ew in organizing colored 
troops, the pioneer work in that line. On the 24th of April, 18(38, 
he was appointed by President Lincoln a Brigadier General of 
Volunteers, and soon after proceeded to North Carolina, where he 
raised a brigade of colored troops from among the fugitive slaves 
in that department, having his headquarters at Newberne ; and it is 
needless to say he was entirely successful in organizing his " Corps 
D'Afrique," known as " Wild's African Brigade." Wliile there he 
gave much time and labor to the care and permanent provision of 
the colored families by colonizing. On the 30th of July the General 
took a large number of raw colored troops to South Carolina, where 
they did valuable and valiant service in the siege of Charleston. 
Three months later, leaving his troops at Charleston, he returned to 
his recruiting work at Newberne, N. C, also in Virginia, Jan. 18, 
1864. General AVild was placed in command of the district of 
\ Norfolk and Portsmouth, which, besides his military labors, involved 
large civil duties in the government of those two cities as Governor, 
filled as they were with a hostile population. 

Upon the opening of the campaign, in the spring of 1864, he 
early in May joined the Army of the James, in command of his 
colored troops, where he continued, participating in the siege against 
Petersburg!! and Kichmond until their fall. 

l)iuin(>' the last three months he was in conunand of a division 
containing three brigades of infantry, besides cavalry and artillery, 
heavy and light — this being a portion of the Twenty-fifth Army 
Corps, composed wholly of colored troops. 

On the 3d of April, 1865, he entered Richmond at the head of 
his troops, as " Jeif" Davis went out; many of the slaves originally 
recruited by the General being the first to enter those sacred pre- 
cincts. At the close of the warlike operations, he served in the 
Freedman's Bureau in Georgia, and was finally mustered out of 
the United States Service, January 15, 1866. 

The General finding himself too much crippled to return to the 
practice of his former profession, he turned his attention to mining^ 
his experience and travels embracing the fields of Nevada, Cali- 
fornia, Utah, Colorado, and Lake Superior (Canada side). 

It is due to General Wild to pay that when he first enlisted into 
the Army, he enjoyed the highest esteem and confidence of all who 
were acquainted with him in his Massachusetts home. Particularly 
did he enjoy the confidence of Governor Andrew, who was a warm 
personal friend, during the Eebellion. When he entered the service, 
his experiences in the Turkish army were of great value to him. 
The General was of an impulsive nature, full of patriotism and

intense enthusiasm, and ^ave his entire [)Ovvers to the service. His 
record confirms all the statements nuide, and one who knew him 
intimately says of him, that "His bravery was only paralleled 
by his almost womanly modesty." No better evidence of the truth 
of the above statements, and of hia bravery, than at " Wilson's 
Wharf" on the James river, Virginia. While in tlie command of an 
important outpost at the above locality, he was surrounded by a 
greatly superior force of cavalry under the conunand of Major 
General Fitz Hugh Lee, and was sunimoned to surrender, in the 
following hinfifuafjre : 

" By command of INIajor-General Fitz IIu<(h Lee, T am sent to demand a 
surrender of the Federal troops at Wilson's wharf. He (General Lee) 
thinks lie has troops enough to carry the position. Should they surrender 
they will bo turned over to the authorities at Richmond and treated as 
prisoners of war. Should they refuse, General Lee will not be responsible 
for the consequences. 

Very respectfully your obt. servt., 

R. J. Mason, Major and A. A, G. 
To Brig.-General Wild, commanding Federal troops." 

The reply of General Wild was returned, in the following laconic 
manner ; 

** We will try it.— Ed w. A. Wild, Brig.- Gen. Vols" 

And try it they did, and the Union Army was victorious, saving- 
an important position to the "Army of the James." The firmness 
and ecpmnimity of the nnnd of the General was one of his leading 
characteristics. Fear did not enter his mind to prevent him from 
carrying out his purposes ; indeed it has been often said of him that 
he did not know the definition of the term. His mind was ever on 
the duty to be perfornuHl, and stopped not to weigh the risk attend- 
ing the same. He had the greatest disregard of self, and was of a 
vivacious turn, enlivening all company into which he entered, which 
rendered his society peculiarly welcome to both sexes. Jvindness 
beamed in his countenance, and benevolence warmed his heart. He 
was ever kind, courteous and affable, and in his profession the high- 
est motive of his mind was to relieve the sulfering of humanity by 
his skill, and every duty was performed with delicacy, as well as 
with tenderness. His friendship was firm and confiding. In his 
tastes simple, and averse to all hollow pretensions and ceremonial 
observances. He was a good scholar and distinguished as a mathe- 
matician, and a favorite in his He was especially fond of 
music, and helped to furnish the music on the big bass viol in the 
church choir, as well as taking a deep interest in band music. 

After the General had lost his arm at the battle of South Moun- 
tain, twenty of his college class presented him with an elegant dress 
sword of the regulation pattern, elegantly chased and gilded, with

Mcdlllin. In this enterprise the tropical climate and the excessive 
heat were too much for one used to our northern clime, and espe- 
cially at his time of life. His residence south was short, being less 
than a month, and on the 28th of August, 1891, he passed over the 
river, amid warm and loving friends, althougli away from his home, 
who did all that could have been to cheer and help him in his last 
hours. Personal and ofHcial services were freely tendered at his 
decease by the American Vice Consul, tlie Governor and other 
officers of State, well knowing that they were doing honor to a 
good man and a gallant officer. Ho was buried with military and 
masonic honors, under a military escort, and the funeral rites were 
performed amid a large concourse of friends, including the Governor 
and officers of the State, who paid the honor due to his station. 
Kind friends laid wreaths and garlands on his coffin, and thus the 
last tribute of respect and regard for a distinguished man was paid, 
and we can only regret that our old friend, citizen, physician, cap- 
tain, colonel, and general, could not have ended his last hours near 
the early associations of his life. He now rests in quiet seclusion 
at Medellin, Columbia, South America.

swelled pretty much yet the paine continued in the other leg, by the use of 
means the stopag of his urine was removed, yet the other symptoms con- 
tinued. After some time there came a doctor to the Island that thoujiht 
the swelling and pain in his legs might be removed by batliing and sweath- 
ing, which preceded accordingly in some measure, but after some time the 
swelling proceeded upwardly and he was siesed with an inwerd fever and 
shortness of breth which pievaild upon him till it carried him otf. His 
nostril and throat grew so sore some days before he died that he could not 
speak so as to be understood, he was a man of good sense considering his 
education and seemed to be piously inclined tho he did entertain some 
singulare opinions in religion.

1604— Trumbull contra Edmonds— B. & A. T. 3, G2. 

Emm Trumbull of Loudon wydowe of Emaimell Trumbull for her 
selfe and on behalf of her daughter Mary Trumbull. John 
Edmonds in his lief tyme in his fatherlie care towards yo"" Oratrix 
did bequeath to said Orr^ fifty pounds, said Edmond being her 
late father, not to come into the hands of her husband but for the 
vse of her selfe and children in case of necessitie — it beinj; iu 
trustees hands and bringinj^ four pounds interest yearly. He 
made will 12 Jan^ 1598. lie had messuages and tenements iu 
St Dunstan's in the East by lease of the Ifishmongers company. 
Said Emanuell died last Michaelmas. Executors refuse to pay 
the money. Me had also, 14 June 42 Eliz"', four tenements in 
Little Holland, co. Essex, bringing twenty pounds g ann. He 
borrowed mone of one George Turfelt and gave bonds. Said 
Rich'^ Edmonds* pursuaded him to convey messuages to him as he 
could not pay, pleading affection of a brother (as he was to yo"^ 
Oratrix). Oratrix offers to pay; he refuses to return the bonds. 
Defendant's reply. — John Edmonds was of the Misterye of ifish- 
mongers of the Cittye of London. He demised said messuages 
to one William IJeale, and made Henry Edmonds and Kichard 
Edmonds, theis defendants, his Ex""^. A mere legacy should be 
sued for in the Ecclesiasticall Courts and not iu this honorable 
Courte. ComplMs in decayed estate and greatlye indebted: so 
as if Defendts shoulde delyver vnto her said fifty pounds it should 
be vtterly wasted. It was not for all her children : twenty 
pounds were also bequeathed to Mary Trumbull her daughter. 
They will willingly pay these suras to suche psons as this Courte 
shall awarde. Trumbull was much indebted to this Def' and 
made default of payment. John Edmonds left the money to 
Kichard Edmonds and not at all to the said children.!

On the rith of May you remember that General Knox was directed to

precise 'I'irne for his delivering uj) ye Westein posts within the Jurisdiction 
of tiie United States:* the ollicer employed in tin; Business was Colo. Hull 
who has returned to this place *fc says that G. Ilaldiman informs him, that 
not having received any Onlers it is out of his power to deliver up the 
posts, altho : ho has certain information of the Uatification of the definitive 
Treaty; but the General further declared that he should execute the Orders, 
whenever they arrived with pleasure, & treated Colo. Hull with great 

The Indian Treaty seems to be at a stand, owing to the different Opin- 
ions in Congress respecting their Uight to make Requisitions for Troops 
without Consent of the Legislatures in Times of peace; & also to the 
Oj)position of New York in Consequence of a non Compliance by Con- 
gress with the Request of that State for authority to raise 500 INFen for 
taking possession of the Western posts.t ^^'<^ States of Massachusetts & 
N. York claim a 'J'ract of western Territory, which the latter have hereto- 
fore garrisoned. Massachusetts announced their Claim to the New York 
Legislature & having petitioned Congress for a Foideral Court to deter- 
mine the Jurisdiction, a Day is assigned for that purpose. [j; but previous to 
this, when it was proposed in Congresc to send part of the Troops retained 
at West point by General Washington to take possession of the Western 
posts, the Delegates of N. Yoi'k pursuant to their Instructions objected to 
the INleasure, because the Troops were from INFMssaehusetts & })art of the 
posts were in the Jurisdiction (as N. York says) of that State: ik, the 
Objection was followed with the Application which 1 mentioned as having 
been rejected, this Opposition of N. York, & the dissent of some of the 
States to any liequisition for Troops produced an opposition in other 
States to the Kmj)loyment of the Troops at West ])oint on the Business 
mentioned, unless it was previously provided that their places should be 
speedily supplied by Troops to be required & quotied on the several States 
by Congress, tJc finally the regular Troops were all disbanded excepting 
about ()0 to guard coasts jMagazines <&c., & the States of Connecticut N. 
Y''ork N. Jersey and Pennsylvania were called on by Recommendation to 
raise 700 Men for the Service mentioned to serve one year. The first & 
last will probably comply with the 'Recommendation, but by a Letter of 
last Week from Doctor [Arthur] Lee one of the Commissioners I am 
informed N. Jersey are not raising any IMen, tfc N. York have directed their 
Governor to hold a Treaty with the Indians in Behalf of the State, in 
Consequence of which he was gone to Albany, on the Business, thus as it 
is conceived by the Commissioners of Congress, that Troops are necessary 
to attend them in the Treaty, & no Troops are raised, it will not probably 
take place this year.

New York 2oth Feby. 1785 
My dear Sir 

I am this Day favoured with yours of the 11th of Novr. & am unhappy 
to hear that the Flames of War have burst airain in the eastern World, & 
that there is too much reason to apprehend, they will rage at an early 
period, in the western Hemisphere — nevertheless, if Britain is so much 
under the Influence of a weak passion, as to indulge it in renewing Hostili- 
ties amonjist us, we shall meet her with cheerful Hearts well knowinor we 
liave Resources, & being fully assured, We shall by some eifectual plan be 
able to draw them forth in suthcient quantities to humble her pride & cor- 
rect her inimical Disposition. 

Having given Mr. Adams Information of the proceedings of Congress 
since their Meeting at Trenton, & desired it may be communicated to your- 
yolC, I can only add on this llciad, that Mr. [Robert] INIorris, General [I'hile- 
uu)n] DickinsonI cV^ (Jeneral [Philip] Schuyler are elected Commissioners 
to erect the Fcxuleral Jiuildings on the Delaware, & that the two former 
have accepted the Appointment. 

Nothing further is done respecting a Land Ofl'ice, but I presume it will 
be soon taken up, as the Indian Commisssioners have made considerable 
progress in their Negotiations. 

A Rei)ort is mad(>. to raise loOO Men, but what Number will bo agreed 
on, c^ in what Moile, Time must determine — the proposition is to raise them 
for three years. 

Another Report is made for recomrrending to the states an alteration of 
the Confederation, so as to invest Congress with the power to regulate the 
Trade of the United States, as well with foreign powers as with each other 
& whilst I am on the Subject give me Leave to enquire, whether it will 
not bo better policy to form our Ti-eaties on Tei'ms of Reciprocity with each 
Nation rather than on the principles it has adopted with the most favoured 
Nations? If we provide in our Treaty with each Nation, that whatever 
may be the Average of its Duties on Imports & Exports, we will lay simi-

ing Doctor Franklin's Resignation is before Congress, who will probably 
pass it, & appoint yourself to the Court of Versailles. You will certainly 
have all the N luigland interest in your Favour. 

Doctor Lee having just arrived from the Lidian Treaty, informs me that 
a Cession is obtained from the Savages of about thirty Million acres of 
land, bomided by the great Miami; Lake Erie &c; & that another Treaty 
is to bo held, in which a further Cession is expected more to the southard

Gerry and Others to Jefferson, 

New York 23rd August, 1785 
Dear Sir 

We have the honor of addressing this by our worthy friend, the honor- 
able Mr. Sayre,* who was formerly sheriff of London. 

The active part, which at the commencement of the revolution he took 
in favor of America, is wo presume, too well known to you, to require a 
relation: and the loss he sustained, in consequence of his opposition to the 
britivSh ministry, is not less a matter of jreneral information. 

These considerations have induced liis friends in this quarter, to express 
a wish that he should be employed in some public ofhce under Congress, 
wherein he can render servi(;e to the United States, in a manner that shall 
be consistent with his honor, and their 'nterest. 

Tt so happens, at this time, that there is no appointment of that descrip- 
tion, to which w(i can noniimite him; but there is an olliccs which he will 
I)robably acct^pt, and the right of lllling it, is vested by Congress, in your- 
self and his Excellency Mr. Adams: we mean the department for conduct- 
ing the treaty with the Emperor of JMorocco and the other Harbary powers. 

* Stoplien Sayre was a native of New York, and had been a classmate of Joseph Reed, 
at Princeton, ilo was interested in some land speculation in wliieli Charles Townshcnd, 
Chancellor of the Exchequer lield shares, and removing to London engaged in trade. He 
was unfortunate, became l)aidvrupt, married a lady of furtune, turned banker, joined the guild 
of tlie l"'ramework-K!ntters, dabbled in politics, took up the cause of Wilkes, and in tliat 
turmoil was clu)scn aslieritf of Loudon. At the outbriak of the war with the colonies, he 
joined the Amerieaus, and wilh Arthur Leo sought employment in lOurope. He accom- 
panied that strange man to IJerlin, on tlie occasion of the riiliug of his dispatch box by the 
English ri'presentative, Hugh J'^lliot. Witli that ids active partici|)ation in public alfairs 
ceased, and he became an hanger-on to the An:erican ministers at Paris. He was eccentric, 
impulsive and not over scrupulous— a political adventurer. See my Letters of William Lee.

Shoulrl you be disposed to employ Mr. Sayre in this business: we think, 
his knowledge of mankind his polite address his comraereial and political 
accomplishments, and above all, his sense of honor and integrity, cannot 
fail of insnring you as great a degree of success, as the qualities of any

My dear Sir 

I intended by the last Packet to have answered your Letter of the 11th 
of May, for which I am much indetced to you: but was accidentally pre- 
vented by her having sailed the day before I expected it. I cannot account 
for the Detention of your Letter by Colo. LeMair : and will give you 
Notice*, if the Commissioner's Letter by him to Congress, has not been 
received. Your Reasoning, respecting Entrepots, corresponds with my 
own Ideas of the Subject: 1 cannot see any great Advantages from multi- 
plying them in Times of peace : in War they may be more useful. — with 
Respect to the commercial Arrangements of the Court of France, in the 
W^est Indies, however favourable they may be viewed by some, they affect 
our Fishery & have a direct Tendency to discourage it. A Duty on our 
Exports of Fish, applied as a BoTinty to encourage theirs, is a Rule that 
has a twofold operation tfc has been very alarming, this I suppose was the 
Cause, why an Act of JNIassachusetts which originated before I left the 
State, to retaliate british Resti'ictions, has since my arrival here been 
extended to other Nations, with Respect to the Oyl Contract, it does not 
raise the Expectations of those who were to be at the Head of it, in this 
Qu:ii Icr, so far as to ongnge them in an Adventure, at least INIr. Wads- 
woith c^c appear to bo cool about it, A'hether to secure the Oyl at a cheaper 
Rate, or from ^lotives of Dislike, I am unable to determine, be this as it 
may, we are not the less obliged to our good Friend the Marquis, to whom 
pray present my affectionate Regards. — the provision obtained in the 
Treaty with prussia, appears to me of great Importance, the Advantages 
you mention & I think many others will result therefrom. 

We have done very little in the present Congress, the Want of a full 
Representation has retarded all & prevented an Adoption of the most 
important Fcederal Measures, the Requisition labours exceedingly & I am 
apprenensive of an Adjournment without compleating it. Congress appear 
to be in earnest respecting a Mint, which the Board of Treasury have under 
Consideration, they are to digest the several plans & reduce them to a

urn exceedingly happy to hear of your own & M'" JNlunroe's welfare: Wo 
had before heard of the addition matlo to your Family, on which I heartily 
congratulate you. INIrs. Gerry made me a similar present the P' of JMarcli 
last, which is now under Innoculation with her Mamma at New York, &. 
in a fair way of recovery; I expect them both here in about a week. Your 
sentiments are perfectly correspondent with my own respecting domestic 
Happiness, it is ye only Happiness in this life which in my opinion is worth 
a pursuit, our little pet is named Catherine after its Grand INIamma, & is 
the object of our mutual Delight. I observe you have conunenced the suit 
against Randolph, and when Money is wanted to carry it on, you will please 
to draw on me. — nothing will give me more pleasure than to mention you 
to any of my Friends, who may have business to transact in Virginia; I 
I should have done this as well from, a regard to them as to yourself, know- 
their Concerns would be perfectly safe in your hands. The Convention is 
proceeding in their arduous undertaking with eleven States under an In- 
junction of secrecy on their members. 

New Hampshire have elected members who are soon expected. 

The object of this meeting is \^vy impoi tant in my mind. — unless a sys- 
tem of Government is adojiied by Compact^ Force 1 expect will plant the 
Standard: for such an anarchy as now exists cannot last long. Gentlemen 
seem to be impressed with the necessity of establishing some ellicient 
system, & I hope it will secure us against domestic as well as Foreign 
Invasion — pray remember me in the most friendly Terms to Mrs Monroe 
& be assured I am on every occasion Your affectionate Friend

sidtMable time from attending to business, which afterwards pressed in an

expectation of seeing yon & yonr lovely Mrs. Monroe here tin's Spring 
witii your little folks, hut have been liitlierto disappointed & I fear we 
shall leave the City without ti»at pleasure — we have only one child alive, 
having lost a lovely boy h'lst fall about twelve months old, but IMrs G. is 
hourly expecting an addition to her family & I wish the conflict was well 

As to politicks, I can say nothing about them that will be very pleasing. 
I was in some expectation that the new government would have for a time 
risen superior to local views & prejudices, but confess to you that I am 
greatly disappointed for I think the evil exists in as great degree as it did 
under the confederation. The two houses are much divided about the 
assumption, & their embarrassments are increased by blending this with the 
permanent & temporary residence of Congress. Intrigues, cabals & com- 
binations are the consequence, and what will be the issue, time must deter- 

Congress are much divided on other points touching the Funding System 
& I see no great prospect of our placing public credit on a solid basis: 
but you know I am not a[)t to despond <Sc on this occasion T am determined 
to anticipate good, untill evil shall exclude every ray of hope.

Cambridge 4th April, 1797 
My dear Sir 

Being troubled at this time with an inflammation in the eyes 
my letter nuist be short. I am very happy to hear of your arrival at Phila- 
delphia; but Mrs. Gerry ct myself should have been much more so, had 
you taken jiassage for Boston & spent sometime with us at Cambridge, 
whenever you may make a tour of Massachusetts, we shall depend on your 
making of our house your headquarters with Mrs. Morvroe & your petits. 

Your recall* has always been, in .ny mind, enigmatical. 1 have made 
enquiry of all my friends, but no one could tell the reason, when Mr. 
Adet was here, I enquired of him ; &-, he supposed, there was a plan to fill 
all the foreign ollices with men disaffected to the french government: & 
gave his Reasons for this opinion, at that time, I tho't he might be heated 
with zeal, & made allowances for it; but from appearances since I am con- 
vinced that there has been a deep system, at home & abroad, to disgrace 
republicanisu), c& republican oiricers ; & that the late President [Washington] 
has unfortunately conlided too much in jjcrsons of this disposition, if this 
was the case, I am sure from some circumstances, that our present chief 
magistrate [John Adams] was not in the secret : the intriguers probably 
knew him too well, to su[)pose he would join the nefarious league; & they 
accordingly laid a plan to prevent his election, as well as J\Ir. Jefferson's, 
but, have happily for the public failec'. it has lately leaked out that the 
cause of your recall was your speculations in france; carried on by the 
assistance of Mr. [Kulwar] Skipwith, who is represented as a deep specu- 
lator, this is so remote from your character, that it wants no refutation in 
my mind; ujore especially, as 1 had heard of your having made a fortunate

My dear Friend 

Your obliging letters of the 12th of May, & 21st of June, 
I have received; & have taken a step, by accepting the appointment of 
France, which it is dilhcult to justify to my family, under existing circum- 
stances.* your information & oj)inion which had great influence in this 
decision; tlie weighty considerations, that the appointment having beeu 
once declined, a second refusal mi<i;ht at home & abroad make disai^reeable 
impressions; & the critical state of our affairs, which, dilhcult as the enter- 
prise is, requires the most vigorous ellbrt of every friend to this country, 
have combined to form a determination the result of which, as it respects 
the publiek as well as the Envoys, is problematical; ^ may entail on the 
latter eulogiums or anathemas, according to light in whicii their conduct 
migiit be viewed by contending political parties, the public good shall 
nevertheless bo my object, & if this should eventually be attained, I shall 
disregard pei'sonal considerations, it is im))0ssible for me at this time, 
pressed as 1 am with attentions on all sides, &jifflicted by an inflammation 
in my eyes, to do justice to your letters in which is comprised a volume of 
politics, the declaration which you make respecting your principles & views, 
is supported by the uniformity of your eonduct & requires no collateral 
evidence. I do not conceive that the President has the least doubt of your 
disposition, in your proper department, to cooperate with him c^ support 
the dignity of his oflice; or the leasit apprehension, that you ''view him as 
an obstacle in your way" to what you consider "splendid misery." there 
can be no doulit, I thiidx, when he relinquishes the high olhcc* which he 
now fills, that you will be his successor; and a party, unfriendly to one or 
both of you, will naturally use every strategem to interriq)t your mutual 
confidence^ for this would make the friends of each, the friends oi both, &

Cambridge 15tb January 1801 
By Judge [Levi] Lincoln, my dear Sir, I embrace a favourable oppor- 
tunity of acknowledging your very friendly letter of tbe 2Gtb of Jany, 1799; 
but permit me [neviously to give you some information in regard to tbis 
gentleman. IMr. Lincoln is an eminent lawyer in this state, & his profes- 
siomd talents, arc accompanied witb a humane & benevolent disposition, 
pure inte^nity, great libeiality, & unsullied bonor &. morality; lie is more- 
over a rational consistent & thorough republican, if you do not find tbat 
bis character corresponds with tbis description, & that be is a real acquisi- 
tion to Congress, I will readily relinquish all pretensions to any knowledge 
of mankind. 

I congratulate you, my friend, very sincerely, tbat we have reason to 
bo])e never again "to see the day, when, breathing nothing but sentiments 
of love to our country, & its freedom & happiness, our corresjiondence must 
be as secret as if we were hatchinir its destruction." I have long wished to 
express the great obligation I felt, for your free & full communication by 
the letter mentioned; but to do it by tbe corrupt channel of a post office, or 
by any one, who betraying bis trust, might consider perfidy as a meritori- 
ous act of federalism, was less eligible than to delay it till an interview or 
safe conveyance should present itself, as to n>y political sentiments, they are 
not secret, but I wish not to have tbem promulged by the base means of 
interception ; because one seldom writes to a friend witli that precision, 
which is necessary in expressing, dui'ing the reign of faction, political opin- 
ions, indeed, before the receipt of your letter I bad every reason to sus- 
pect, tbat a certain disgraced Sc disgraceful ex-secretary* opened a letter 
which I wrotu to President Adains, <Sc fabricated with its coadjutors, a 
rijport in regard to my communications wbicb tbe President was under the 
necessity of rejecting, as containing, " misrepresentations, calumnies, &

falsehoods." But that tool & scapegoat of faction after havinf^ done more 
mischief than ever before was aflectcd by a man of such mean ct rude abili- 
ties, has retired to the woods, the proper situation for savai^e nianuers. 
could you conceive sir after seeiii;^ his report on my communications, that 
he was in possession of a proposition which I made to my collcaijues, at the 
very commencement of our disgraceful conferences witli X <Sc Y, which 
would have put an end to them, v^ which President Adams acknowledged 
to me, was a full answer to everything that could be urged against me. 
it is in these 'words "To the question, whether the propositions informally 
Si conlidentially communicated to us as private citizens, at the recpiest, as 
is stated of iMr. Talleyrand, in his [)rivate capacity, will be adopted as the 
basis of a treaty? this answer is given, that it is highly probable some of 
the propositions communicated on the evenings of the I9th & 20 of October 
(being the *J8th ^ 29th vendimaire) will be considered as the basis of the 
project of a treaty, & others as inadmissable; but that it is impossible to 
discuss, or come to a decision on them, until they are presented to us in our 
ollicial characters." I have the original proposition by me, & at the bot- 
tom of it this note in General Pinckuey's hand writing "intended to be 
given Saturday the 21st of October." I have in a number of remarks, 
pointed out to the President, the illiberality, partiality & injustice of that 
odicious report, & but for the President's request to avoid a public discus- 
sion of that extraordinary mission, would have, long ere this, done justice 
to my conduct & character. I trust however he will eventually do it.* 

I am extremely an:5jious to hear the result of the Presidential election, 
the insidious plan of the feudalists, to place Mr. Burr in the chair, is the 
acme of their perfidy and enmity to this country, he himself considers it 
in this light; well knowing, that the measure does not proceed from any 
respect or attachment to him, whom they abhore as well as yourself on 
account of your mutual predilection for republicanism, but from a desire 
to promote that division among the people, which they have excited & 
nourished as the germ of a civil war. I must candidly acknowledge, that I 
tho't it the best policy to re-elect Mr. Adams Si yourself; because in that 
<jvent, yon would have united your exertions & respective parties in sup- 
pressing the feudalists. Si at the next choice There was little reason in my 
mind to doubt, that Mr. Adams would retire, Sc, with his friends support 
your election to the chair & administration : whereas there is danger now, 
that many of his adherents will again unite with the Ilamiltonians & em- 
barrass your administration, if you should succeed him, to avenge what they 
consider as an act of ingratitude to t!ie object of their choice, but every 
friend to this country, in this event, will double his exertions to support 
you as a measure of the last importance to the foreign & domestic peace, 
iSl g(Mieral welfare of the Union. 

The silent & diguiiied contempt, with which you have treated tlie un- 
paralleled abuse, which, to the eternal disgrace of the United States, has 

* In tlic "Works of John Adams," viii., 610, is printed a criticism by Gcriy on Picker- 
inj^'s strictures. I'resident Adams sent it to Pickering and wisliod to have it inserted in a 
pul)lic print, adding: "It will satisfy him, und do no harm to any one. It explains 
some circumstances advantageously." Pickering declined on the ground that he would be 
obliged to expose Gerry's " pusillanimity, wealcness, meanness, duplicity and treachery." 
It was then that Adams wrote to Gerry : " My opinion and advice and request arc that 
you would not [printj, because things stand at this time well enough. But the publication 
of that letter may involve controversies that had better remain at rest." Pickering's letter 
to Adams, 18 January, 1790, should also be read, as on this is based Gerry's assertion that 
the Prosivlcnt rejected the report of the Secretary of Stiite. Gerry wrote a long defence of 
his coniliict ami sent it to the President July 24, 1799, but I do not lind that it has been

been circulated in their ojuzette, will be a distinguished trait in your charac- 
ter : I wish the veiicra'l Doctor Priestly, whose reputation, in the opinions 
of liberal men was invulnerable, had not condescended to notice anonymous 
calumnies, for the measure bciiiig uimecessary, was of no service to him. 
to confound slanderers, it is suilicient not to merit the slander. 

Your assurance, in regard to your not having intermeddled with the 
affairs of our mission, by means of Doctor [George] Logan,* was unneces- 
sary: I knew you too well to listen to such a calumny. You have been 
pleased to make me "a profession of your political faith" & to add, " these 
my fi-iend are my principles, they are unquestionably the principles of the 
great body of our fellow citizens, & I know that there is not one of them 
which is not yours also." in this last expressioii you do me great honor 
& justice likewise, & the principles are such as I ever have been, & hope 
in this country where I mean to spend the residue of my life, I ever shall 
be free to avow, & altlio' " we differed on one ground, the funding system," 
yet was I sure that "from the moment of its being adopted by the consti- 
tuted authorities, you became religiously principled in the sacred discharge 
of it, to the uttermost farthing." Your declaration to this effect therefore 
was not requisite to confirm my belief. 

The coi-rui)t propositions made by X & Y did not appear to me to have 
been sanctioned by the Directory of whose integrity or justice I had how- 
ever no great opinion, indeed there was no positive evidence that they 
proceedeil from JNIr. Talleyrand, but I have no doubt of the fact. £50,000 
sterling, which as a douceur to be divided amongst the Directory, would at 
that time have been spurned at by them, might have answered the purposes 
of Mr. Talleyrand & of the principal ollicers of his bureau, & his general 
character will warrant the belief, that this was his object: but be this as 
it may, you would never have seen those dispatches, had I been alone oq 
the mission, untill all hopes of peace were at an end, & their communica- 
tion had become necessary to unite the nation in a declaration of war. I 
was apprehensive of their publication & suggested to one at least of the 
other Envoys, General IMarshal, the propriety of confining the comnmnica- 
tion to the i*resident, & frequently to both, the extraordinary light if pub- 
lished, in which it must be viewed by meir of sense, indeed it is wonder- 
ful that the promulgation of our dispatches had not proved fatal to me, for 
the Directory were so exasperated at it, as immediately to agitate the ques- 
tion of war. Si there was a bare majority against it, on the principle only, 
that it would be a measure, which however [)rovoked by the United States, 
was a favourite object of G. Britain & if adopted, would make France a 
dupe of the policy of that nation & of its own resentment. The great exer- 
tions of the british cabinet to circulate thro'out Europe our dispatches, 
served to convince the Dii-ectory of the impolicy of a war with us, at least 
on that occasion. ]Mr. Talleyrand had early in the spring declared to me 
in the name of the Directory, that my departure from Paris would bring 
on an immediate rupture, t^ as tlieie had been no instance of an official 
declaration made by the directory which had not been carried into efiect, 
I have no doubt of it in this instance: but when they saw how eager their 
most inveterate enemy was to attain the object, they did not think so 
lightly of it, as they had been wont to consider it. tlie war party here 
have pretended, that the martial attitude of the U. States prevented a war, 
but that was not known in France at the time of the declaration made to

me in the name of tlie directory, neitlier was a war viewed by it then, as 
an acquisition of sucli importance to G. li. if however there exists the 
least doubt that france woultl have dochired war, or tliat a suggestion of 
X & Y to tliis eilect, disavowed as it was by the diiectory and french min- 
ister, was different from the ollicial dechiration made to me by Mr. Talley- 
rand, yet I think there can l)e no doubt, that had all the l^^nvoys have left 
France at that critical period, the U. 8. on their arrival here would have

peace might not have been attained, if either of my colleagues had been of the 
same sentiment with myself. I have no hesitation to answer in the allirm-

possessed this qual ideation, was the point on which my determination, then 
lield in sus[)ense, turned for accepting the appointment to that embassy, 
without such a persuasion nothing could have induced me' to the measure, 
but you was unfortunately for me, tho' perhaps fortunately for the publick, 
mistaken & the late events have proved, that peace as we both supposed, 
was attainable. Judo^e Lincoln has called on me rather sooner than I 
expected, & is in too much haste to wait untill I can answer the other parts 
of your letter : I must therefore reserve this for another opportunity. 

I have thus far communicated without reserve & in the fullest confidence 
my sentiments on our important national concerns; & if they are too much 
tinged with severity, the unmerited provocation which I have had must be 
my apoloj^y. permit me now my dear sir to renew my assurances of the 
most sincere attachment, Sl that I remain with the highest respect your 
affectionate friend.

[Concluded from page 304.] 

It will be seen, upon a careful examination of the evidence now collected 
together, that we are still without the solution of the problem of President 
Garfield's English ancestry^ though it can hardly be doubted that we are 
upon the right track. Nor do the will« help us to form much of a pedigree. 
Still it is clear that the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire families were 
nearly akin. Thus William Garfield of Clifton on Dunsmore, 1618, names 
John Freest of Kilsby Thomas, and John Garfield of Kilsby, in the same 
year (1G18) names, as his overseers, John Preeste and Thomas Anlsupp, 
while William Gaifield of liilton, 1584, names William Awsop of Kilsby, 
and the nino children of Thomas Awsop, besides Steven Shatswell and John 
Shatswell. A John Shotteswell attested the will of Robert Garfield of 
Church Lawford in 1C20. The name of Shatswell often occurs in the Kils- 
by manor rolls.

450 Notes on the English Garfields. [Oct. 

Sorao court rolls for Cold Asbby exist in tlie Public Record Office, but 
these — which are for the period of 22-25 Ileury VIII. (1531-31) — have 
uo mention of tlie name. 

It will bo ob.s(irved tliat we have a record at Lichfield of the adminis- 
tration of one Edward Garlield of Ilillmortoii in 158G; as he was a mar- 
ried man it is, of course, possible that he was the father of Edward Garfield, 
of Watertown, Mass., the stockfather of the American family, who was 
born about 1575. Or the emigrant may have been a son of Richard named 
in the preceding table. That he was nearly related seems at least probable 
when we remember that Ralph Garfield, in his will (1607), mentions, that 
his son IJenjamin (afterwards of London) was then "in some part beyond 
the seas." Ralph Garfield was largely interested in ships and it may be 
that his son was then visiting his kinsman in Massachusetts. All this, how- 
ever, is mere surmise, and though of one or two branches, notably that of 
Church Lawford and Asliby St. Ledgers, it is possible, with the help of the 
registers, to draw out more or less complete pedigrees, it seems better not 
to attempt it at present. Some of the later records, which are now printed, 
may appear scarcely relevant to a search after President Garfield's English 
ancestors, but it must be remembered that some interest necessarily attaches 
to even the remote kindred of so eminent a man, and in that fact the reader 
will doubtless find an adequate reason for their inclusion. 

Since writinoj the fofejjoinfj notes I have ao^ain consulted the manor rolls 
of Kilsby with that result, that the rolls of eight more courts held upon 
dates ranging from 1 Elizabeth, 1558-9 to 1600. In none of the later 
courts could any mention of the name be found, but in the roll of the court 
held on 21 October, 1659, we have mention of the fact that " Willms Gare- 
fielde" was one of the homage. Further there is an entiy of the death of 
Thomas Garle,who, it will be remembered, was presented on 20 April, 1551, 
as heir of Robert Garle. This is of special interest, as it proves the cor- 
rectness of the suggestion thrown out in my former paper, that Garle and 
Garfield are identical names. From the fact that Ellen West was pre- 
sented as heir of Thomas Garfield, it seems clear that he and his brothers 
must have died without issue and that consequently the ancestor of Presi- 
dent Garlield must be sought for in some other line of the family. It will 
be seen that Thomas Garlield must have died sometime in the year 1558 or 
1559, possessed of the messuage, " quatrona " of land and customary cot- 
tage to which he had succeeded on the death of his brother, Robert Gar- 
field, in the 4th of Edward VL As already mentioned his sister Ellen 
West, who was the wife of Thomas West, of Paylton, succeeded him, paying 
the value of the heriot the "black blossomed" cow and also paying a fine 
and doing fealty. The record of these transactions is thus set out on the 
court loll :

Morse, Everett, Jones, Avery. — Abigail' Morse, daughter of John' and 
Anuis (Cliickcriiig) Morse, was born in Dedham, Mass., March 2, 1040-7, and 
baptized March 8, l()10-7. She married for her llrst husband Israel"'' Everett, 
son of Uicliard and Mary (Winch) Everett, who was born in Dedliam July 14, 
1051, and died there December 23, 1078. To them were born in Dedham Tahi- 
tha^ Fverell June 11, 1070, and Josiah^ Everett August 3, 1078. She was married 
a second time, October 18, 1087, by Kev. John Bayley of Watertown, Mass., to

town, Caleb Jones, December 20, 1088. 

The wife survived her second husband, and died in Guilford, Conn., Sept. 
23, 1737. 

William Jones, with his wife Abigail, appear to have lived in Watertown from 
their rnarriaii^e in 1087 until about lODO, when the family, with the three young 
chiUlren, removed to Guilford, Conn., and thenceforth resided there. Tlie two 
children by the llrst marria.i>:e retained their father's name under the spelling: of 
" Avered," grew up and Avere nuirried in Guilford. 

Tabltha^ Avered married January 5, 1705, Benjamin Dudley, a tAviu son of 
Joseph and Ann (Robinson) Dudley, who was born June 11, 1071, aud died 
February 20, 1720, in Guilford. She married secondly February 21, 1723, Jasper 
Saxton, whose birth and death are unknown. Her death is recorded in the 
(Juilford Church records: " Tabltha Avered Saxton, Midow Jasper, Sept. 27, 
17r)5." By the llrst marriage there were fonr daughters and one son. 

Josiah^ Avered nuirried i)ec. 20, 1703, Elizabeth ('ook, ilaughter of Thonnis

Diirluim about 1728 or D, and in 1732 moved again to the adjoining town of 
WaUingfoiHl, where he Avas living in 1747, when he deeded a farm to his sou 
Abner"* Avered, in consideration of love and good Avill to him. 

Caleb Jones, the son by the second marriage, likewise grew up in Guilford, 
aud was married there July 15, 1723, to Mary Bishop. He died May 24, 1754. 

Israil"* Avered, born as above stated May 4, 1708, in Guilford, removed as a

in Durliiini or WallingConl, probably the former, where, on the town records, 
the name i.s spelled Avered, Avored, Averd, and Auered. After the removal to 
Torrinuion it became Averet, Everit, and Everett, and all of his descendants 
have followed the last. Their children were : Mlcal,^ born July 2!>, baptized

Everett, was the settled pastor in Warehain, Mass., for nearly llfty years. 
With this branch the spelling of tlie name changed from Avered to Everett.

Conn, (formerly part of Watertown and Waterbury), spelling it Averet in 1791, 
and Everit in 1704, while Edmund and Eunice, who remained in Wallingford, 
aud Abner, who removed to Northampton, Mass., spelt it Avery. 

The daughter Sarah* Avered was married iu Wallingford June 12, 1735, to 
Ebenezer Lewis. 

Of tlie other sons, Reuben'* and Timothy,* I have no history, and would like 
information if there is any one to give it. 

This statement of the ancestry of Abner* Avered shows the incorrectness of 
the claim i)ut forth in the "Averys of Groton," recently published, where he 
is called Abner Avery (No. 61, pp. 410-20), the son of a Josiah Avery of Ston- 
ington (No. 20, p. 410). My attention during the past year has been given to 
Josiah and Tabitha Avered of Guilford, Conn., and their descendants, two 
branches of which, Josiah and Israel, I now have nearly in full. While fol- 
lowing the Abner branch, I found, in examining the AValluigford records, that 
the spinning of the name began to change about 1750 to Avery, and that since 
ISOO one portion of this branch were all Averys, while anotiier portion were all 
Everetts. The most complete evidence of this claim is the deed signed in 1785 
by the four sons and one daughter, wherein by the beginning Amos Avored of 
Watertown, Ambrose Avered of Watertown, Edmund Avered of Wallingford, 
Abner Avered, Jr., of Wallingford, and Eunice Avered of Wallingford, deed 
land descended to us from our honorable mother, deceased, twelve acres, near 
where Ens" Amos Hall lately lived, and bounded N. and S. on heirs of Amos 
Hall, deeeased ; W. on land deeded this day to Abner Avered, Jr. ; E. on land 
of liarlliolomew Andrews. This deed w^as signed Amos Avered, Abner Avery, 
Jr., Ednioiul Avery, Ambrose Avery, Eunice Avercnl. In 1707 the father made 
his will, Avhicli was presented to the Trobate Court in 1804, wlum all the names 
were s[)elt Avery. At the same time Amos and Ambrose wrote their names in 
1701 as Averet, while Edinond and Eunice became Avery. This shows clearly 
that Abner was an Everett and no Avery. 

An examination of the records of Guilford, Durham and Wallingford will 
conllrui these points. My abstracts of these, together with other references, 
are now on llle, bound, in the library of the New-England Historic Genealogi- 
cal Soeiety in Boston, Avhere they can be examined.

Robert Parke, at that time of Wethersfield, Conn., and afterwards of New

England. In May, 1040, her daughter Bridget married George Denison, then 
of Roxbury, and later of Stonington, Conn. Robert Parke's son Thomas mar-

Wethersfield and Alice of Roxbury? Was Dorothy of the same family of

Laumon and Townsend. — In a Bible in my possession is this entry : " Ebene- 
zer Townsend born 22 June 1710, and married Sepf 19"' 1738 to Elizabeth Lar- 
mon born 0"' Sept 1718." 

Ebenezer Townsend Avas the sou of Isaac and Anne (Ranger) Townsend and 
was born in Boston. 

Elizabeth Larmon is supposed to have been born in Boston. 

On the records of the Brattle Street Church, imder date of June 9, 1715, is the 
marriage of Robert Larmon and Mrs. Sarah Tyley. On the same Church records 
are the baptisms of the following children (the parent or sponsor in each case 
being given as Sarah Larmon): Elizabeth Larmon, Oct. 21, 1710; Sarah Lar- 
mon, Jan. 11, 1719; Love Larmon, Feb. 19, 1721; Robert Larmon, Aug. 10, 
172-1; Love Larmon, Aug. 21, 1720; Samuel Larmon, May 12, 1728. 

January 10, 1738, Robert Larmon, aged about 15, son of Robert Larmon late 
of Boston, mariner deceased, chose Benjamin Clap of Dorchester for his guar- 

March 31, 1741, Robert Larmon, aged about 17, son of Robert Larmon, late 
of Boston mariner deceased, chose Joseph Trescott, of Dorchester, for his 

(Sull'olk Probate, vol. xxxiv., p. 203; vol. xxxv., p. 312.) 

Erom the foregoing it is eviclent that Elizabeth (Larmon) Townsend was the 
daughter of Uobert and Sarali (Tyley) Larmon, of Boston. Said Robert Lar-

Lamb. — Isaac Lamb bought land in Groton, Conn., Jan. 15, 1096. lie was 
perhaps the Isaac who was baptized and owned the covenant at Watertown, 
July 10, 1087. A grandson of Isaac related to a descendant, now living, this 
tradition. Isaac Lamb and his father came from England and received a grant 
of land in Haverhill, N. H. After a time they were driven olf from it by the 
Indians and Isaac went to Connecticut for safety. The name of his father is 
not remembered. I would like to knoAV if there are records to prove the fore- 
going and give the name of the father. I find in Ipswich Deeds, vol. i., p. 701, 
a Daniel Lamb mentioned as one of two appraisers of a mare taken up by Moses 
Gerrish, 19 June 1070. Daniel was the name of one of Isaac's three sons and 
the name has been common in every generation since. The Daniel Lamb men- 
tioned I cannot place in any Lamb family of which I have record and may have 
been the father of Isaac if the tradition 11 to be trusted.

llev. Edmund Buukk Willson, A.M., of Salem, Mass., late vice-president 
of this Society for Massachusetts, was born iu Petersham, Mass., August 15, 
1820, and died in Salem June 14, 1895. 

He entered Yale Collei^e, but left before completing the course, and entered 
the Cambridge Divinity School, from which he was graduated in 1843. He was 
ordained January 3, 1844, in Grafton, where he preached for a number of years, 
and Aviicre ho is still remembered with interest and attcction. He was installed 
as pastor in West lloxbury July 18, 1852, where he remained until he was 
called by the North Church in Salem (Unitarian), where he was settled June 5, 
1859, and where he remained till his death. 

Mr. Willson was a typical New England minister — a studious, cultured man, 
with a fine i)rescnce, grave, yet genial and gracious, the friend and counselor 
of his people, an earnest preacher for more than half a century, and a zealous 
imd faithful pastor. One has recently written of him : — 

" lie was loved and honored by all the citizens of Salem, regardless of creed,

like a veritable patriarch; he was a benediction in himself. When the Metho- 
dists of Salem gave the great feception to Bishop Foster, ^Mr. Willson was 
selected to speak the welcome of the Salem pastors, and he did it as few men 
could have done it." 

He cultivated an interest in every good cause. He found time to enter 
heartily into a great variety of studies and labors outside his professional work. 
He was engaged in prison and labor reform, and in a variety of enterprises of a 
charitable nature. He was interested in ^he schools, and served on the Salem 
school board in 1859, '00, '(11, 'OS, '00, '<;7, '68 and '09. He was a valuable mem- 
ber of the State Legislature in 1883 and 1884, and served on the Connnittce on 
Education. He was the author of the Free Text Book Law, which has done so 
much to.increase the attendance of the children of those families in moderate 
circumsftinces, at the public schools, especially the High Schools. He was 
president of the Salem branch of the Massachusetts Prison Association. After 
the death of President Wheatland, Mr. Willson was elected to succeed him in 
the presidency of the Essex Institute, a position of honor and of responsibility, 
which recpiired much active work. In January last he was elected vice-presi- 
dent of our own Society, for Massachusetts, to fill the place left vacant by the 
declination of Chief Justice Field. In this new position he has accepted cheer-

Mr. Willson visited Europe in 1878. He was one of the founders of the 
Salem Fraternity — an institution which fills the place of the Boston ('hristiau 
Union. He was active in sustaining the American Unitarian Association. 

He leaves live children — three daughters and two sons : Bobert W. Willson, 
Instructor in Astronomy at Harvard, and Samuel B. Willson, both of whom are 
graduates from Harvard University. 

He was elected a resident member of this Society November 2, 1859.

Thomas Emerson Proctor, Esq., of Boston, a life member of this society 
since 18S(5, Avas born in South Danvers (now Peabody), Mass., August 29, 1834, 
and died in lioston Dec. 7, 18U4. He was the son of Abel and Lydia Porter 
(Emerson) Proctor, both of wliom were born in South Danvers. 

The Proctor family in this country is descended from John Proctor, who 
came in lUiJo from London, in tlie sliip jSusaii and Anne, at the age of forty, 
with his wife Martha, aged twenty-eight, and two cliildreu — John, aged tliree 
years, and Mary, aged one year. He set Jed in Ipswich, and later removed to 
Salem. He died, probably in 1G72, as his will was proved in November of that 
year. lie left seven children. His son John, born in England about 1G32, mar- 
ried in 1()G2; Elizabetli Tliorndyke, and after her death married Elizabeth Bas- 
sett. He had nine children. During the excitement relating to witchcraft in 
IG'Jl and 1G02, his second Avife was accus'^.d of l)eing a witch, and was brought 
to trial and comlcmned. Her husband, "for showing proper regard to her," 
as Hutchinson says, fell under suspicion of the same crime, and was also tried 
and coiulomncd, [See Hutchinson, vol. ii., pp. 25 and 55.] He was put to 
death August 19, on what is now known as Gallows Hill. His wife was re- 
prieved on account of her pregnancy, and before the reprieve expired, the ex- 
citement had so far subsided that she was not executed. Tavo, or perhaps 
three, of their children, Avcre also sent to prison under suspicion of the same 
crime, but Dwy Averc discluirged Avitliout a pul)lic trial. Four years later tlic 
legishiture liad to be petitioned to order the release of her liusl)an(rs property 
from forfeiture. [See Felt, vol. ii. 484.] It has been sugge^ited that the 
charge of Avitchcraft Avas brought againsi Mr. Proctor on account of his sturdy 
opposition to tlie vicAvs then prevailing in respect to Avitchcraft. Dr. Nichols, 
Avho Avrote the historical poem for the Centennial Day of the tOAvn of South 
Danvers, has this couplet of the Proctor family : — 

"The I'roctors they say 
AVill have their owu way." 

The Proctor family has been Avidely scattered over Ncav England and beyond. 
It has included a large number of vigorous and successful men and women, 
Avho have done their part in the world as honorable and useful citizens. 

Thomas Emerson Proctor attended the public schools in South Danvers, and 
at the age of thirteen Avas sent to Kimball Union Academy, Meriden, Ncav 
Hampshire, Avhere he remained tAVO years. He Avas an excellent scholar in 
Latin and Greek, and in mathematics. At fifteen he became a clerk in his 
father's store, and at eighteen he Avas a member of the firm. He developed a 
remarkable capacity for business, and acquired a large fortune. He Avas a gen- 
erous and public-spirited citizen, of Avide influence, but he did not desire to 
occupy any political position. It is said of him that he declined the nomina- 
tion of mayor of Boston, Avhich Avas tendered him more than once by his fel- 
loAv-citizens. He Avas cool and collected Avhere others Avere excited. When 
notltled that his proi)orty in Peabody Avas ourning, he first found his insurance 
papers, and then Avent to the tire, ready to rebuild. His poAvers of body and of 
mind Avere always under control. He had no bad habits. He retained the men 
in his em})loy a long time, one of them as many as forty years. When his mind 
Avas made up he was infiexible in his pnrposes. 

He Ava^ president of the Uniteil States Leather Company in Boston at the 
time of his death. He anticipated the recent advance in the price of leather, 
antl had uuide hi.s plans to take advantage of the advance. It is said tliat his 
company have nmde a large sum since his death by folloAving his directions. 
He Avas a director of the Eliot Bank, Boston, and a trustee of the Massachu- 
setts General Hospital for many years. He Avas also a regular visitor at the 
McLean Asylum for the Insane, and Avas for many years greatly interested in 
it. By his Avill he left $100,000 to this asylum. The toAvu of Peabody has just 
accepted his oll'er of eleven acres for a park, to Avhich gift is to be added 
another, from his sister, for the same park. 

Mr. Proctor married Emma HoAve, of NcAvark Valley, N. Y., September 1, 

Pkteu Butler, Esq., was born in Oxford, Mass., January 6, 1820, and died 
in Boston July 1, 1894. He became a life member of this society in 18G9. The

than a century. His paternal ancestor, Stephen Butler, came from England

In 1741), and in 1779 removed to Oxford, where he kei)t a country store, and car- 
ried on tlie liattin,*; and fur business for twenty-hve years. He was a licensed 
innliolder from 17.S0 to 1805. lie is si)olien of as a i^ood citi/en, of enterprise 
and iiiMuence. His son reter, born Dec. 10, 1774, succeeded Idm in the various 
linos of business in Oxford. His name a])pears in connoclion with tlie bu^iues^^ 
of the town as sclectnuin, town treasurer, as one of a comniittoe to l)uild a 
meetinii: liouse and a parsonage, to raise tlio salary for the ndnistiT, to eidar^c 
tlie social lil)rary of the village, and in various otiicr positions. It is stated in 
the History of Oxford that he was a man of " much stren«(tli of character, with 
a remarkable memory, well stored with the productions of English writers and 
with local traditions, and endowed with rare powers of conversation." 

His third son, I'eter, began his active life as a clerk in the store of his uncle 
James, at lUitland, Vt. After a few years he went to Boston, and was employed 
in the store of John C. Proctor, a hardware merchant. He proved to be a very 
ellicient and valuable clerk, and, while still a young uian, he became a partner. 
He married, September 5, 1843, Lucia, the daughter of l)ea. John C. Proctor, 
the senior member of the firm. After the financial crisis of 1837 and 1838, the 
old lirm was dissolved and a new firm was formed, with the name of Proctor 
«& Butler, occupying the store at No. 89 State street. In the forties this llrm 
was among the principal shippers of goods to the great west, then lllUng up 
rapidly with settlers. When Dea. Proctor retired, Mr. Butler, with the two 
principal clerks, formed a new business finn, known as Butler, Keith & Hill. 
Subsequently Mr. Butler was at the head ot the firms of Butler, Sise & Co. and 
Butler, Johnson & Co. These firms were very enterprising, and did much to 
build up the foreign and domestic trade of Boston. 

Mr. Butler became interested in the plans for building railroads in New 
Hampshire and Vermont, and Canada, to perfect a line of communication 
between Boston and the St. Lawrence. He was intimately associated with the 
projectors of the Boston, Concord and Montreal, the Vermont Central, the 
Connecticut and Passumpsic, and the Ogdensburg railways. He was also inter- 
ested Avilh General Whitney, in 18G5, in starting a line of freight steamers to 
New York. He lost heavily in the great tire, and retired from trade soon after. 

He resided for more than thirty years in Quincy, at the Quincy Mansion, one 
of the oldest nuuisions in the country. He had a clioice library, and a large 
collection of rare and curious relics of the past. 

in politics he was a Webster Whig, and was an intimate friend of that states- 
man. On the dissolutiou of the Whig party he joined the Democratic party. 
He was not prominent as a candidate for any public ofllce, but lie had great 
inrtuence in the councils of his party, and he contributed funds for campaign 
expenses. In his personal and business relr.tions Mr. Butler was much esteemed, 
and tluMV was never any (luestiun as to his b\isiness integrity. He left a num- 
ber tit chil^lren, (>ne of whom was graduated at Harvard College and the Har-

Cleveland, and is a successful lawyer in Boston.

ISIr. liussell was a merchant iu Boston until 1847, when he began the trustee- 
ship of estates, especially the properties of his grand-father and father-in-law. 
From 1847 to 187(5 he was treasnrer of Bunker Hill Monument Association, and 
afterwards till his death, a director. He wr.s a member of the City Council in 
1874. He was ever connected with church interests, whether in Boston or at his 
summer home at Nahiint, and was a devoted believer in the great'essentials of 
Christianity, and a promoter of them in daily conduct. He was an organizer 
and constant supporter of the Bostonian Society ; was a member of its execu- 
tive board, honoring it by his watchful attentions. The history of Boston, 
with which so much of the lives of his ancestors was associated, and so much 
of his own active career, was a source of delight to him. His funeral services 
took place from Trinity Cliurch, and burial at Mount Auburn. 

In the Rkuistku, 1882, p. 324, Mr. Russell queried concerning the parentage 
of his ancestor, Joseph Russell, who married Susanna Cheever, there having 
been publislied erroneous interpretations of data. Mr. Russell, with character- 
istic perseverance, proved the above Joseph Russell not to have been a son of 
Rev. John Russell, but of Robert Russell of Audover.

Rev. Alonzo Ames MiNim, A.M., S.T.D., LL.D., of Boston, a resident mem- 
ber of this Society, elected February G, 1884, was born in Lempster, New 
Hampshire, August 17, 1814. His father was Benajah Ames Miner. His mother 
was Amanda Gary, 

The name Miner has been traced back to the time of Edward III., who gave 
a coat-of-arms, and the name of " Miner " to a man who fitted out a Company 
of bne hundred men, armed with battle axes, many of them laborers in his 
mines, for the king, to be used in his wars with France. The tirst " Miner" 
died in 1359. Thomas Miner, who came to Boston with Governor AViuthrop in 
1G30, >vas descended from the first Miner. Grace Miner, great-granddaughter 
of Thonnis, married Samuel Grant Jr., April 11, 1G88, from whom General 
Ulyses S. Grant was descended. Charles Miner, of the fifth generation from 
Thomas, was a Revolutionary soldier. At the close of the war he removed 
from Connecticut to New Hampshire. 

Alonzo Ames Miner was the second in a family of five children, and the only 
son. He was an invalid in his earlier years, and una))le to pursue an extended 
course of study. As he became stronger, he attended for a few months the 
Academy at llopkinton, N. H. Later, he attended school at Lebanon, at Frank- 
lin, N. H., and at Cavendish, Vt. He began the work of teaching at the age of 
sixtiHMi. At the ago of twenty he was associated with the principal in the care 
of the aciuioniy at Cavendish. The next year he became the principal of the 
ScientUlc and Military Academy, a new institution at Unity, N. II. ; a position 
whlcli he lu'Ul lour years. He began to preach in 1838, and in June 183i) he was 
ordained. The same year he became pastor of the Universalist CJiurch in 
IMethuen, Mass. In July 1842 he became pastor of the Second Universalist 
Church in Lowell. In 1848 he was called to Boston, and became pastor of the 
Church on School street, a position which he held till his final resignation of 
the active pastorate in 18i)l. In 1851 the Clmrch editlce was enlarged, and Mr. 
Miner took the opportunity to make a trip to Europe. In 1872 his Church 
dedicated the large and beautiful house of worship at the corner of Columbus 
avenue and Clarendon street, and under his wise and vigorous ministry it entered 
upon a new era of prosperity. 

lU'sides Ids work as a clergynnm, Dr. Miner was connected with Tufts Col- 
lege for more than forty years. He Avas one of its fountlers. He subscribed 
generously to its funds. He made tl»e address at the laying of the corner-stone 
in 1853. He was inaugurated as president of the college July 9, 18G2, and held 
tlie ollice until 1875, when at the urgent request of his congregation in Boston, 
he resigned the presidency. During the tim*^ when he held this office he had au 
associate in the pastorate. Apart from this he was the sole pastor until 1891. 

Dr. Miner was a many sided man. From early years he desired to enter the 
Christian ministry. His best and most permanent work was perhaps as a pas-

■\vas all his life connected with iiistitntions of learning. He excelled as a teach- 
er. He was twenty-fonr years chairman of the State Board of Kdncatlon, and 
twenty years cliairman of the Board of Visitors of the State Normal Art

Universalist rublishing House on "West street. 

He was one of the "Hundred Boston Orators." He was a member of the 
American Academy of Political and Social Science, and of the Executive Com- 
mittee of the American Peace Society. 

He was most widely known as a reformer. He had the spirit of his Puritan 
ancestors. He was all his life fighting the evil which had entrenched itself in 
the laws and customs of society. He was engaged in the temperance work 
for fifty years. He often appeared before legislative committees to nrge the 
passing of laws to limit or prohibit the sale of intoxicating drinks. His argn- 
ment in 18G7 before the legislative committee, against the repeal of the pro- 
hibitory law, was a great speech, full of facts and arguments. He occupied a 
leading position among those who are seeking to secnre a better observance of 
the Sabl)ath. To his latest years he was ready, at any time, to enter the lists 
in beludf of those principles which his J'nritan conscience counnended.

Jiemimscences of Foreign TVaveL A Fi'agment of Autohiography . By Robert 
C. WiNTiiuoi'. Privately Printed. 1804. 8vo. pp. 104. 

Tiibutas to the Memory of liohert G. WintJirop, by the Mufisachusctts Historical 
Society, December 13, 1894. Boston : Published by the Society. 1894. 8vo. 
pp.40. ^ 

These two volumes, the first containing the Reminiscences of Robert Charles 
Wiuthrop, and the second containing thoughtful and appreciative estimates elo- 
Cjuently expressed of his life and life-work, by several members of the Massa- 
chusetts Historical Society, constitute a valuable addition to the biography of 
one of our great public men, a man whcm Massachusetts, nay our country, 
loved to honor while living and whose memory will be warmly cherished in the 
years to come. JMr. Wintlirop was, to begin with, a man of good parts. And 
he received a careful and thorough course of instruction at Harvard College, 
before entering upon the service of his country in political life. After holding 
ofllce in his native state, he was elected a member of congress, then speaker of 
the house, and finally a member of the senate of the United States. He was 
an excellent prose writer, and also an eloquent orator. While he will long be 
rememb(;red by his published works, it is perhaps as an orator that his fame 
will be most secure. As Mr. Henry Lee lias well said: " After Mr. Everett, 
VQL. XLIX. 40 

4()G Booh JSFotlccs, [Oct. 

we have had no orator who has irradiated so many occasions, local and national, 
with historical research and sa^c retlections presented in clear and euplionious 
speccli." Wo must not forget tlie great service to tlie cause of education ren- 
d<a-ed Ijy Mr. Winthrop as tl»e cliairman of tlie board of trustees of tlie I'eabody 
Education Fund, given by tliat great philantliropist, George Peabody, the bene- 
ficent and far-reaching ellects of wliich it would simply be impossible to cal- 
culate. The following extract from Mr. Winthrop's oration delivered at 
Yorlctown contains weiglity words in regard to the necessity of education : 
"Universal education, without distinction of race, must be encouraged, aided, 
and enforc^ed. The elective franchise can never be taken away from any of 
those to whom it has once been granted, but we can and must make education 
co-extensive with the elective franchise ; and it must be done without delay, as 
a measure of self-defence, and with the general cooperation of the authorities 
and of the people of the whole country." And again: "Slavery is but half 
abolislied, emancipation is but half completed, while millions of freemen with 
votes in their hands are left witliout education." 

Mr. Winthrop's Keminiscences abound in keen and yet kindly analysis of 
character, and that too, of men wlio exercised a powerful influence in shaping 
thonglit and action during an eventful penod. His portraitures, or rather outlines 
of biograpliy, contain in a few well-turned and felicitous sentences what we 
feel must be accurate descriptions of character. And few men during the past 
half century have had so wide an acqnaintance among the leading men of our 
own land and their English contemporaries in social, political, and literary life. 
One great element of his inlluence, one great feature of his usefulness to Ins 
fellow men, was the hopeful view which he took and constantly expressed of 
human nature. His judgments were kindly. Said Mr. Hamilton A. Hill: 
" His heart was so thoronghly nnder the influence of that charity that 'hopeth 
all things,' that nil nisi bonum was his rule of speech concerning both the liv- 
ing and the dead. He was always ready to say a kindly, pleasant and graceful 
thing, when this did not involve the obliteration of moral distinctions." Per- 
haps the most interesting feature of these Keminiscences are the glimpses 
which Mr. Winthrop nnconscionsly gives ns of his own greatness of intellect, 
loftiness of ciniracter, and (even more) of his kindliness of heart; for these, 
after all, are the qualities that go to the making of the man. 
, It is given to but few men to attain distinction in more than one walk in life, 
but it was not so with Mr. Winthrop ; he was a man of letters, an historical 
writer, an orator, a statesman, an educator, a philanthropist; he was great in 
all these varied walks in life, but he was greatest of all as a man.

In tl^nuary, 1872, a brief article on the " Descendants of Col. Richard Lee of 
Virgima," appeared in the Register. It was contributed by Messrs. Cassius 
F. Lee Jr. of Alexandria, and Joseph Packard Jr. of Baltimore, both descend- 
ants of Colonel Lee. The former had from his youth been indefatigable in col- 
lecting facts and documents illustrating the history of his family. For a score 
of years longer he contiimed his labors in this flcld, and at his death, September 
4, 18!)2, had a vast amount of genealogical material relating to the Lees of 
Virginia. His brother, Dr. Ednumd Jennings Lee, of Philadelphia, has taken 
this nuitcrial and added to it the results of his own researches, and has given it 
to the public in the splendid volume before us. 

The book contains a remarkably full record of the descendants of Colonel Lee, 
well compiled and well printed. Particular pains have been taken to make the 
biographies accurate and complete. The illustrations are numerous and of a 
high order of merit. There are thirty portraits, "photographic copies of old 
family portraits, miniatures, engravings and photographs." There are also 
twenty-nine other illustrations.

The List of the Days when Commencement was held in the seventeenth cen- 
tury meets a long felt want. In October, 1879, a list partly conjectural was 
printed in the Kkgisteu with a view to collect further information. Dr. Green 
has nnide a thorough examination of existing bool^s and documents and pre- 
pared a very full list, which will be of much service to historical students. 

The pamphlet, on Michael Wigglesworth, preserves much new matter con- 
cerning the early editions of his famous " Day of Doom." Dr. Green has made 
a critical examination of all the accessible copies, and his descriptions of them, 
and the conclusions at which he arrives, as to date of publication, etc., may be 
relied upon. 

The pamphlet, on Benjamin Tompson, "the earliest native American poet" 
is a bil)li(>graphi('ul work of much interest. It principally relates to " New 
Enghind's Tears for her Present IMiseries," an anonymous work, published in 
1G70, which the author clearly proves Avas written by Tompson.

The Society celebrated its quarter centenary on the 27th of February, 1894, 
at eight o'clock in tlie evening, at Berkeley Lyceum Theatre. Gen. James Grant 
Wilson, the pr(>sident of the Society, presided and introduced the speakers. 
Brief acUlresses were made ])y Sanniel S. Purple, M.D., Edward F. De Lancey, 

L'y Thayer Drowne, and Hon. A. T. Clearwater, 
delivered by Gen. Adolphus W. Greely. These 
addresses are printed in the volume before us, as is also a letter from Dr. Henry 
Reed Stiles, dated at London, Feb. 7, 1894, in which he gives a minute account 
of the formation of the Society and its early history. 

Tlie Society during the twenty-live years of its existence has accomplished 
much in the way of collecting, preserving and dill'nsing material illustrating 
American genealogy, biography and history. It has published a quarterly 
periodical, the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, of which 
twenty-five volumes have been completed. 

The volume before us is handsomely printed and is embellished with portraits 
of General Wilson, the president. Dr. Stiles, Mr. De Lancey, General Greene, 
Mr. Drowne and Dr. Holton; and with views of Mott Memorial Hall, the ear- 
liest home of the Society, and of Berkeley Lyceum, its present abode.

The List of British Officers serving in America from 1754 to 1774, compiled 
by Worthington Channcey Ford, Chief of the United States Bureau of Statistics, 
which was commenced in the Register for January 1894, was completed in the 
number for July 1895. Mr. Ford has had a small edition (100 copies) reprinted 
in book fcM:m, which will be much handier for reference. Our readers need not 
be told the great value of this list. It supplies a Avant that has long been felt 
by writers and students of American history. The volume should, and no doubt 
will be, in the principal libraries in this country.

The Record Commission of the City of Providence, R. I., "was established by 
a joint resolution of the City Council, approved March G, 1891. The Urst com- 
missioners -Nvere Horatio Rogers, George M. Carpenter and Edward Field, and 
they have done their work in so satisfactory a manner that they still hold office. 
Their first report was presented March 7, :'892; their second, January 30, 1893; 
and their third, December 4, 1893. These reports were all printed — the first in 
1892, pp. 31, the second in 1893, pp. 31, and the third in 1894, pp. 8. lu these 
reports much information about the condition of tiie records and documents ia 
the custody of the city clerk Is given. To the report for tlie present year, ])eing 
the fourth, is appended a full Index to the Providence ToAvn Papers from 1G42 
to 1790, tilling over two hundred pages, Including an index to the plots of 
streets and highways. This renders the volume before us of special value. 

The Commissioners have also printed eight volumes of Records. These have 
been noticed by us in previous numbers of this magazine. They certainly de- 
serve much credit for their work.

New York Genealogical and Biographical Society. Begister of Pedigree. Price 


The Indexed Genealogical Register consists (for ten generations) of sixty- 
four sheets or charts of similar design, each cut away at the lower left corner, 
and so arranged as to be self -indexing. These are secured in a neat cover iu 
such a manner as to be easily detachable, thus allowing the removal of 
spoiled charts or the insertion of extra ones for notes and additional genera- 
tions. The backs of tlie charts are left blank for notes. The arrangement is 
sucli that a glance reveals the full connection between the person whose ancestry 
is recorded and any line of his ancestors. The book opens at the end, and each 
chart lies perfectly Hat when in use. The Genealogical Register has points of 
excellence not found in other works of its kind. 

Mr. Tuttle's device is a circular chart of stout jute paper, folded in sectors, 
and compactly secured in a triangular cover (7xlG). AVhen fully spread out, it 
is tiiirty-two inches in diameter, and presents the entire ancestry to the eye at 
once. Ortlinarily, when in use, only two sectors are exposed in the same man- 
ner ns tlie pages of abt)ok; but the whole nuiy be quickly and conveniently 
drawn out, like a fan, for reaiiy reference to any })art. Spaces for the names 
of ancestors and dates of births, marriag^es and deaths are given, and room for 
additional notes is found on the back of the sheet. This cliart is very simple, 
easily manipulated, and shows the direct connection with any ancestor. Copy- 

Tlie Re^ster of Pedigree, which has been copyrighted and officially adopted 
by the New York Genealogical and Biographical Society, is made up of eighteen 
charts each tlfteen by ten inches. Theiirst sheet contains a space for the name 
of the person whose ancestry is to be recorded, and serves as a title page. The 
second, beginning at the left, has a diagram for the ancestors up to the great- 
great-graiuli)arents, and these are shown in their proper i^laces by the cut-away 
or indented index at the right. The continuation of each of the sixteen lines 
is shown on its proper page indexed by the name of that line. The whole 
is a simple and ingenious scheme for recording ten generations. It was de- 
signed for the use of the society, and each member has b^eu requested to fill 
out a chart and deposit it with that society.

Though these books have been printed some years, our readers who are in"

Tlie "Semi-Historical Kamblcs " is a reprint from tlie "Collections of the 
Essex Institute." It contains accounts of historic places along Saugus Kiver, 
and some flue descriptions of life in Essex County in the last century.

Flag of the Minute Men, April 19, 1775. Its Origin and History. By Abram 
English Brown. Published by the Bedford Historical Society, April 19, 
1894; 11 leaves. 

The anniversary of the battle of Lexington and Concord, April 19, 1775, was 
made a legal holiday in March, 1894, when Fast Day was abolished, by the 
General Court of Massachusetts, and was then named Patriots' Day. 

The first of the works before us, "The Story of Patriots' Day," is a very useful 
hand-book for those who wish to know about the battle and its celebrations. It 
is compiled from the best authorities on the subject by Mr. Varney, the editor 
of Nasou's Gazetteer of Massachusetts. An appendix is devoted to "Poems 
brought out by the ttrst celebration of Patriots' Day." The book is well printed 
and is illustrated by a number of. engravings. 

The next work is by Mr. Brown, author of " Glimpses of New England Life." 
It relates to a " Souvenir of the 19Lh of April '75," being a flag which is claimed, 
and probably correctly, to have been carried on the historic 19th of April by 
the company from Bedford. The book is embellished with a representation of 
this flag, in colors.

The llrst work, " Historic Danvers," consists of views of historic buildings 
and scenes in that ancient town, with historical and descriptive letter-press by 
Ezra 1). llines, the historian of the Danvers Historical Society. It makes au 
interesting and useful book. 

The next work, "The Military and Naval Annals of Danvers," is by Eben 
Putnam, the editor of Putnam's Monthly Historical Magazine, and chairman of 
a connnittee appointed by the town to revise the records of the inhabitants 
of Danvers who have rendered military and naval service to their country. 
The report gives the sorvlco of all whose records could be recovered from the 
sett lenient of Ihe country to the end of the war for the preservation of the 
union. It will be particularly useful to members of the several patriotic socie- 
ties and those who wish to join them.

In our number for October, 1894, we have given an extended notice of the 
first edition of the work before us. To the new edition has been prertxed an 
able Introduction b}^ Charles Dudley Warner. In it Mr. Warner says: "The 
present worlc by Dr. George II. Clark is not a dry biography, not in any Bense 
an abridgement of Carlyle's noble work, not a rivulet of biography stuffed with 
English history. Such was not needeti. It is a book of enthusiasm, a warm- 
hearted vindication of a great man, based upon careful study, and backed by 
indubitable authority, written with a clear American apprehension of the prin- 
ciples that underlay the great liberating movement of the seventeenth century 
in England. Exactly such a book was needed." 

We commend the work to those who wish to know the true character of the 
great Protector.

These are the first volumes issued by these two local historical societies, both 
recently organized. 

The Fitchburg society prints its Constitution, an abstract of its proceedings, 
and a selection from the papers read before it. The papers are well written 
and preserve much local history. 

The Dover society by vote ilirected the publishing committee to gather, in this 
their Hrst volume, " tlie widely separated records of Marriages, Births, Deaths 
and Baptisms in Dover, N. 11., down to the year 1850." This the committee 
have done. They could not have taken a wiser course.

We are glad to note that there is an increasing interest in the importance of 
preserving town records by printing them. 

The records of Concord, New Hampshire, are printed by order of the Council 
under the supervision of a committee, consisting of the mayor of the city, 
P. B. Cogswell, and Messrs. Henry W. Stevens and John A. Blackwood. This 
volume contains the doings of the town from 1732 to 1820. A part of the 
records were copied by John C. Ordway and the rest by Miss Isabel S. Dana. 

The Weston and Dedham volumes ar3 additional to records of those towns 
previously published, ■which have been noticed by us. One volume of tlie 
Weston records, edited by Miss Mary Frances Peirce, was printed in 1893; and 
five volumes of the Dedham records, edited by the town clerk, Don Gleasou 
Hill, have appeared. The same persons have edited the volumes before us. 

The e.^^imple of these three municipalities are commended to the attention of 
other tumis.

25 cents. 

This is a second issue, having been reprinted from the Worcester Commercial. 
The plan of the work, we are told in the Preface, " comprehends a handbook of 
general information, which, as a collection of useful references or a guide-book 
to the city and its surroundings, will serve equally the resident and the stranger. 
The scope of the work differs somewhat from that of the * Dictionaries ' issued 
in otluM" cities in being more full in matters relating to the history and chronology 
of lh(^ subjects treated, and In containing much that is not usually Included in 
books of a similar character." 

The >vork seems to be carefully prepared, and will be found a useful book.

Historical Skelch of Chauncy-JIall School, with a Catalogue of Teachers and 
Fiipils, and Appendix. 1828 io 2894. By Thomas CutiiiiNG. Boston : Press 
of Diivid Clapp & Son. 1805. 12mo. pp. 21G. 

" AVhun a strictly private scliool," says Mr. Gushing, in his Treface, " entirely 
unentloMcd, averaiyiug more than two hundred pupils, has nniintaincd itself 
nearly «eventy years, with steady and increasing success, in a community like 
Boston, it seems reasonable to suppose that the facts connected Avith its origin 
and continued existence may have some interest for its numerous graduates, 
including many of the children and grandchildren of the earlier scholars, pos- 
sibly for the general public," Such a school is that whose history is given in 
this book. 

The Chauncy-IIall School was established in 1828 by Gideon French Thayer, 
A.M., of whom a memoir, by the author of this book, was published with a 
portrait in the Register for April, 18G5. Cur readers who have perused that 
article must be convinced that the founder of this school was a remarkable man. 
In the book before us will be found more details of Mr. Thayer's work, his 
plans and his success ; and of those of his associates ands uccessors. We com- 
mend the volume to our readers. 

A History of the Delaware State Society of the Cincinnati, from its organization 
to the present time. By Henry IIobart Bellas, LL.B., Captain U. S. Army. 
The Historical Society of Delaware, Wilmington. 1895. 8vo. pp. 111. 

The Society of the Cincinnati, organized in May, 1783, at the cantonment of 
the American army at Newburgh, N. Y., a short time before the disbanding of 
that army, is the oldest of American patriotic societies. It met with opposition 
in its early tlays, and some of its opponents were true lovers of their country. 
But their fears have been found groundless. The society has lived down all 
opposition, and now, in the llrst quarter of the second century of its existence, 
it is honored by the community as a llrm pillar of the Republic. State Soci- 
eties, supplementary to the General Society, were then formed. 

The volume before us gives the history of the Delaware Society; also, **a 
brief account of the Delaware regiments in the war of the Revolution, and 
personal memoirs of officers, rolls of same, oration before the Delaware Cincin- 
nati on the death of AVashington," and other matters. The book is illustrated 
by portraits, facsimiles and other engravings. It is No. 13 of the Papers of 
the Delaware Historical Society.

the societies are active organizations. Appended to the proceedings of the

We are pleased to note the continuation of Mr. Arnold's "Vital Record of 
Rhode Island." Six volumes have previously appeared, and have been noticed 
by us. The seventh volume is before us, the eighth is now in press, and the 
ninth is in preparation. The compiler has undertaken a great task, and he de- 
serves much credit for carrying it forward so near to completion as he has 
done. Rhode Island is the only one of the original Thirteen States that could 
possibly have such a record complied by one man only. It w^ould, however, 
be a good idea if one man in each county of the other states should undertake 
a similar M^ork for his county. It would be fortunate if each of the men who 
undertook it had the time, patience, energy and persistence to do tlieir work as 
satisfactorily as Mr. Arnold has 'done his. When the work appears in print 
many Avho have been indillerent or carelesc will become warm friends of the 
enterprise. Mr. Arnold is deserving of the gratitude of his fellow citizens, and 
the Slate is doing a noble work in so liberally sustaining his ellbrts. **

Edward Gibbon, the author of the "Decline and Fall of the Roman Em- 
pire," died Jmuiary IG, 1794, aged 5G. The centenary of his death was com- 
mcmora(ed last year at London under the auspices of the Royal Historical 
Society, Avho have published an account of the proceedings at the conunemora- 
tion, which is before us. The Earl of ShelHeld, grandson of the first Lord 
Shellleld, the friend of Gibbon, who collected his manuscripts and other memo- 
rials, and Avho, twenty yezirs after the historian's death, published Gibbon's 
Miscellaneous Work, was selected for president on the occasion. An exhibition 
of manuscripts, books, pictures, and relics, was held at the British Museum, 
by permission of the trustees. It was opened Monday, Nov. 12, and remained 
open a fortnight. 

A pnblic meeting was held in the theatre of the Museum of Practical Geology, 
at Jormyn street, on the 15th of November, at which the Right Hon. Sir M. E. 
Xjrrant Dull', president of tlie Royal Historical Society, presided. After an 
appropriate speech, he introduced Mr. Frederic Harrison, who delivered au able 

474 Boofc Notices, [Oct. 

historical address. The appendix contains a catalogue of the relics and other 
historic articles exhibited at the IBritisii Museum. A portrait of Gibbon, from 
Sir Joshua Keynolds's painting, embellished the volume. 

"During tliree liundred years," says Mr. Harrison in his centenary address, 
*' the reputation of the historian has been continually growing larger and more 
Ann, his limitations and his errors have been so amply acknowledged tliat they 
have coasetl to arouse the controversy and odium which they naturally invited 
in former generations, and the civilized world, n)aking full allowance for dif- 
ferences of party and of creed, has agreed to honor the historian for his grand 
success, and no longer to censure that wherein he failed." 

The commemoration exercises and exhibition were a notable tribute to the 
memory of the great historian.

"We continue in this number our quarterly notices of recent publications relat- 
ing to family liistory. 

The book on the Provost family is a well compiled volume, well arranged, hand- 
somely printed, and illustrated with tine portraits. It has a good index. The 
emigrant ancestor was David Provost, who was born in Amsterdam, August 10, 
1G08, and came to New Netlierhinds in 1624. Two years later lie returned to 
Holland, where in 1G30 he married JNIargaretta, dauglitcr of Gillis Ten Waert, a 
wealthy merchant. Jn 1034 he returned with his wife to the new world. His 
descendants are given in this volume. The author says : " Mucli labor, timeand 
some money have been spent in collecting and verifying the data used; but 
neither has been wasted if its readers take half the pleasure in perusing this 
record that ■\vas enjoyed by the compiler when engaged in this labor of love. 

Tlie next book, on the Uailey family, is devoted to the Khode Island family 
of tiiat name, ilcscended from 'William Bailey of Newport. No connection has 
been traced between him and liiehard Bailey of liowley, ^lass., a record of 
whose descendants, by Mr. Alfred Poore, was i)iiblished in his Merrimack Val- 
ley Uescarches in 1858. The compiler has done a good service for her relatives 
by gathering ui) and preserving in print the record of tlie several branches of the 
lihodc Island Baileys. The book is well arranged and well printed on thick 
Avhite paper. It is illustrated witli views of the Gideon Bailey and the Daniel 
C. P.ailey Houses in Greenwich, 11. I., built in the last century, and numerous 
portraits. It has a good index. The work on the volume must have been a 
laborious one. In it the compiler, Mrs. Hannah C. (Bailey) Hopkijis, lias been 
greatly assisted by her step-son, Mr. Charles W. Hopkins of Providence. 

The book on the Webster family, by Prentiss Webster, is devoted to one 
branch of the descendants of Thomas Webster, of Ormsby, in Norfolk, Eng- 
land, whose son Thomas came to this country and settled at Hampton, N. H. 
He was the emigrant ancestor of the Hon. Daniel Webster. The volume was 
compiled at the request of Mr. George Webster, now living in his 85th year, 
who "rendered much valuable assistance" to the compiler, leading him "to 
the stories of the localities in which his ancestors had lived, and from which 
the desired information liad been obtained, togetlier with many renuniscences 
of his father and grandfather." The book makes a handsome volume and seems 
to have been carefully com|)iled. 

The work entitled " A Frontier Family" is the history of llev. John Wheel- 
wriglit, a prominent figure in the Antiraon'ian controversy, who came to New 
England in 1030 ; and of some of his descendants. It is reprinted from the 
Publications of the Colonial Society of Massachusetts, the edition being limited 
to 110 copies. The author, who is a descendant of llev. John Wheelwright, 
has written a very interesting account of his ancestors and kindred. 

Tlie Speed pamphlet is a paper prepared for the Filson Club and read at its 
meeting June 4, 1894, by the llev. James H. Heywood, of Louisville, Ky. The 
emigrant ancestor of the Speed family here recorded was James Speed, born in 
Soutluinipton, Kngland, in 1070, who came to this country and settled in Meck- 
lenburg Comity, Virginia. Many distinguished men are numbered among his 
descendants. Mr. Heywood has done justice to them. 

The two numbers of the History of the Putnam Family whose title we give 
complete the first volume of the work, which is now brought down to the seventh 
generation. We hope Mr. Putnam's list of subscribers will be so increased, 
that he Avill be encouraged to hasten its completion. 

The Moi'ehouse book is devoted to the ancestors and descendants of Gershom 
Morehoust^ Jr., of Redding, Conn., a captain in tlie revolutionary war. He was 
born Nov. 25, 1727 and died July 27, 1822, aged ninety. He was descendant in 
the fifth generation from Tliomas Morehouse, his emigrant ancestor, who set- 
tled in AVethersfield, Conn, as early as 1G40, in 1041 removed to Stamford, and 
in 1053 to l^'uirtleld Avhere he died in 1058. The lines are well traced, and the 
book makes a handsome volume. 

JNlr. Deacon's two works on the Deacon and the ^leres families are bound in 
one volume. On the first family, he tells us, he has been engaged for four- 
teen years, and this preliminary sketch is intended as a key to a pedigree 
rather than a genealogy of a family. The author, who is a member of the Fair- 
field County Historical Society of Bridgeport, Conn., has a mass of material 
relating to the name which we hope he will find time to arrange and publish. 

Tlie work on the Meres family gives an account of several English news- 


47G Itecent Publications, [Oct. 

papers condnctcd by members of that family. Interesting historical as well as 
geiiealoirical matter is here preserved. 

In tlu; Garrett pamphlet Rev. Mr. Ilayden gives an interesting sketch of the 
life of Miijor Garrett and appends to it a brief Garrett genealogy. The sketch 
Avas prepared for Dr. Egle's " Notes and Queries" In the llarnsburg Telegraph 
Tvhere it was printed in October, 1893. The Wyoming Massacre has always an 
interest and new facts are always welcomed. 

The Hooker leaflet contains an able article by Mrs. Annie A. Haxton, of the 
editorial staff of the iVeio York Mail and Express, on Rev. Thomas Hooker, the 
tlrst minister of Hartford, Conn., and some of his descendants. It is reprinted 
for distribution among the family by Commander Edward Hooker, U. S. N., of 
Brooklyn, N. Y. 

The Chamberlin pamphlet gives a full record of the paternal ancestors of the 
compiler, Joseph Edgar Chamberlin. Tne emigrant ancestor of this family 
was Richard Chamberlin, who settled at Braintree, Mass. as early as 1G41^, and 
soon after removed to Roxbury, and thence about 1GG8 to Sudbury where he died 
in 1073. Mr. Chamberlin, who is of the eighth generation, has been very 
successful in tracing his ancestors, and gives detailed accounts of all of them 
in this country. It is a fine specimen of genealogy confined to one line. 

The pamphlet on Chief Justice William Little of North Carolina and his de- 
scendants is l)y Marshall l)e Lancey Haywood, of Raleigh, N. C. Judge Little 
went f nnn New England in the early part of the last century and settled at 
Edenton, N. C. In 1724 he was made Attorney General and in 1732 Chief Jus- 
tice. Since the publication of this tract facts have been discovered that render 
it almost certain that he was the William Little, son of Isaac of Marslifield, 
Avlio was born Feb. 27, lGi)2, and was graduated at Harvard College in 1710. 
The pamphlet gives a good sketch of his life with notices of his descendants. 

The rutnam and the Balch Leaflets are intended to preserve in print interest- 
ing matter relating to these two families. The Putnam Leaflets are by Eben 
Tutnam, author of the genealogy of that family noticed by us above. The work 
is intended to be a continuous supplement to that work. The Balch Leaflet, 
besides otlier matter, will contain liberal contributions by Dr. Galusha B. Balch, 
the historian of the family, who has large stores of genealogical and historical 
matter relating to the name. 

The Haynes pamphlet is a reprint from the Register for July last.

John Parsons Evhwakku, M.A., F.S.A., 
died at Pensarn, Abergele, North Wales, 
on the 29th January, 189,5. I iicknowl- . 
edge at the outsft my indebtedness for 
the facts pertaining to the subject of 
this sketch to an obituary notice writ- 
ten by John I'liul Uylands, F.S.A., 
and printed in tlie "(Jhcsfer Arclueo- 
logical Journal." John 1*. ICarwaker 
was born at Oheetham Hill, near Man- 
chester, l^nghiud, April '22, 1817. Al- 
thougli his life was a sliort one it was 
quite long enough tor an inuncnso 
amount of literary Avork. He loved 
English history (in all its various de- 
partments and ramitications) for its own. 
sake, or rather for the inestimable bene- 
fit which this noble and comprehensive 
brancli of k>arning is to mankind. Af- 
ter attending school at Alderley Edge, he 
studied for some time in Germany, and, 
after his return to England, he studied 
for several years at Owen's College 
(winning there several prizes in Natural 
Science), and he then studied at Pem- 
broke College, Cambridge, and after- 
wards at Merton College, Oxford, at 
whicli latter college it appears that he 
took Ills degree, gaining a Hrst-class in 
Natural Science. He then took a regu- 
lar course at tlie Inner Temple, but he 
was never called to the liar. It was : 
during his life in Oxford tliat his love 
for history developed and it was thence- 
forth the absorbing pursuit of his life. 
He was a prolific author, and among 
the long list of his jjublished works 
(almost all of which pertained to his- 
tory,) the n)ost important and volumi- 
nous are the <' Manchester Court Leet 
Records " and " Constables' Accounts," 
printed iw iifteen large volumes and fully 
annotateuT Another work involving a 
great anu)unt of liibor is the Index 
which he prejjared to the Wills at Ches- 
ter, from 1.') If) to 17(50, including seven 
volumes. Mr. I'iiirwaker was for many 
yenrs a Fi-Uow of tlie Society of Anti- 
quaries, lie was one of the fouiulers 
of the Record Society, and Avas also a 
Member of the Council of the Chetham 
Society and also of the Councils of 
three other learned societies. In addi- ' 
tit>n to his constant and unremitting 
labors, he was engaged for more tliau 
twenty years in gathering materials for 

, the history of the Counties Palantine. 
His whole after life (from the time of 
his linishing his law studies at the 
Tem])le) is an illustration of the fact 
that most men must hiive some particu- 
■ lar calling or vocation and devote them- 
selves to that and to that idone if they 
would be prolieient in it and thus be of 
use to their fellow men. .Men should 
never mind the seeming danger of be- 
coming mirrow. To my mind, in this 
day of multiplied avocuiions and but few 
vocations, there is more danger of dis- 
sipating (by engaging in too many pur- 
suits) the golden hours as they lly so 
swiftly by, than there is of liecoming 
narrow or bound to routine. But hap- 
pily the trend of education has begun to 
turn. It is already beginning to be 
recognized that it is better to master a 
few studies, a few books well (and those 
of the kind that stimulate and nourish 
thought and reflection) than it is to 
attempt to cover too wide a range of 
subjects. Mr. Earwaker either had by 
nature or else acquired the habit of ex- 
•actitude, without which no historical 
writing can be valuable. Probably his 
early training for the law was the means 
of forming and maturing this cast of 
mind. As exactitude is the one indis- 
pensable test of all work in the wide 
realm of history, so it may be said to 
be in all branches of learning. In 
other words thoroughness is the first 
requisite. What is the impetus of all 
historical study? It is no less than, 
the search for truth. If it be objected 
tbat all historical writing is but an ap- 
proxinuition to the truth, it is certainly 
the nearest approxinuition that we can 
get, the most reliable branch of secular 
learning through and by which to cast 
light upon the fascinating and nuirvel- 
lous study of human life ever unfold- 
ing newer and greater possibilities and 
opportunities upon the wide stage of 
human activity. The present moment 
alone is ours. The past is beyond our 
reach. But the lessons (full of deep 
and solemn import which it teaches) lie 
within our grasp. And who may limit the 
results which nuiy be obtained through 
the earnest and persistent cultivation 
of the pleasant fields of learning. If 
the study of nature aninuxte and inani- 




mntc will lend men up to the study of 
iiii(,un''H (lod, in what lar}i;er nuNiHure iw 
this true of the wtuily of uuui, of nmu 
iniule in the inuigo of (iod, vStiindin}^ 
midway between the two eternities: 
t\\*i eternity of the past stretching 
back into dim recesses fur beyond the 
reach of mortal ken, the eternity of the

Eli.vs Howe, Esq., son of Elias and Han- 
nah (Perry) Howe of {South Framing- 
ham, Mass., was born in that town 
Augu>t 1), 1820, and died nt his resi- 
dence in Watertown, ^lass., Saturdry, 
July G, 1895, a\ 75. lie was a descend- 
ant of John^ llowe, an early settler at 
Sudbury, Mass., through Samuel''^, 
Samuel, 3 Sanuiel,* Ile/ekiah,^ Perley,'» 
and K[ias,\>his fatlier above named. 
"SViien H young man he exliibited con- 
siderable talent for music, and copied 
into a l)lank book every tune he heard 
played. In tliis Avay he gathered a 
huge (collection of tunes, which was in 
great demand by musicians. In 1840, 
■when ID years old and working on a 
farn), it occurred to him to get his book 
published. It was printed for hin\ by 
Wright iS: Kidder, music publishers, 
jlosion, under the titk; of "The Musi- 
cian's Ooinpunion." It was afterwards 
extended to three volumes, and ran 
lluougli many editions. From this 

beginning, it is said, sprang the large 
triulc ill music books at a popular 
price in the United States. Mr, Howe, 
about 1840, opened a store in Uostou 
and became a dealer in music and nui- 
sical instruments. *' He wrote and 
published all kinds of instrumental 
instruction books, and went from city 
to city selling them. In this work he 
travelled all over the United States and 
became one of the best known music 
publishers in the United Stales." 

About 18o0 he sold out his business 
and bought an estate in South Fra- 
mingham, where he resided, acting as 
manager of an Ice Company for 
several years. About the year 18G1, 
he returned to Boston and engaged in 
his former business. During the early 
years of the war he sold drums and 
Hfes to nniny of the Massachusetts regi- 
ments, as well as to those in the west- 
ern States. Jle also published music 
adapted for the drum and fife aiul 
for military bands. He made many 
trips to I'hirope for the purchase of old 
and valuable violins, in the value of 
■which he Avas skilled. When he died, 
he had, it has been said, one of the 
largest collections in the world. 

According to his own statement, made 
in 1888, he had then compiled and pub- 
lished about two hundred musical 
Avorks, some of Avhich appeared under 
liotitious names. Among his pseu- 
donyms were " Gumbo Chaff," under 
■which name he issued the "Ethiopian 
Glee Pook " in four numbers, afer- 
Avards bound together, and " Patrick 
O'Flanigan," under which In? published 
"Songs of Ireland." Another pseu- 
donym was " Mary O'Neill." 

He Avas prominent in getting up the 
Howe Family (Jathering at Harmony 
Grove, South Framingham, Thursday, 
August 31, 1871, and published the 
account of the (jathering by Ilev. Elias 
Nason, M.A. About this time he is- 
sued a prospectus for an extensive 
Genealogical Register of the Howe 
familv. The Rev. Elias Nason, Wilham 
U. Trask. A.M., Rev. Josiah II. Temple, 
Alfred Poorc and others made large 
collections for this Avork, but it Avas 
never published. A large part of the 
MS. collected was left Avith Mr. Howe. 
Mr. Howe Avas an invalid for several 
years previous to his death. He Avas 
stricken Avith paralysis in 1887, and 
had a second attack in 1891, Avhen he 
retired from business, and Avas nu)st of 
the time eoulined to his honu!. In 1817 
he was nuirried to Caroline Hills of 
Union, Me., Avho died in Se^jtember, 
18U1. He leaves three children.

appen(led to the will of Ann Scroggs (on page 125 of the same vol.). Her age, 
as given on paire 12G, would show it to be impossible. 

The will of Thomas Man, which I give below, is most interesting since he 
speaks of a Sara Sims, who was dwelling with him, as the daughter of liis late 
wife, and further on in his will he mentions a son in law Uandoll Simmes. As 
he also calls the Lady Stanley his late wife's sister he must be referring to the 
same family of Symmes noticed in the wills of the Serog<j:es family. Sir 
Thomas Stanley seems to have married Mary, widow of John Scrogges, mother 
of Edward Scrogges and grandmother of the Anne Scroggs who referred to her 
cousiu Sara Simmes as in New England in 1G41.

than the second wife of Capt. George Denison of Stonington,'\vho came, a lad la 
his teens, in the Lion 1031, a fellow passenger with the Apostle Eliot, lie grew 
to manhood at Koxlnuy, where his father Avas deacon, lie there married 
Bridget Thompson, who died earl}', leaving two daughters. Denison returned 
to England, participated in the unhappy wars, then prevalent, and was wounded 
at Naseby, where he served under Cromwell. In his wounded condition, he was 
attended by a daughter of the gentleman to whose liouse he had been carried. On 
recovery lie married the lady, who was Arm, daughter of John Borodell, as the 
name has been usually spelled here; again came to Uoxbnry and dwelt there till 
1(551, when, in the interest of Massachusetts, then claiming the eastern section 
of CouneeticuL, he removed llrst to the lV'<l'iot river and tlnally in 1G51 to Stou-

sons and tlirce dungliters married into the leading; families of soutlieastern Con-

Ann Rorodell are perpetuated in hundreds of lier fair descendants in the Gal- 
lup, vStanton, Palmer, Cliesebro, INIiner, Williams, Bal)cock, Brown and Wheeler 
families. It is traditional in those families that Ann's brother, John, came to 
America, but the lanijnai>:c of the will, above quoted, renders the tradition un- 
likely. I'ossibly his son John came.

appoint that his mother .loane Capen tlio wife of Barnard Capen of Dor-

said mother to do with it according to her mind. Whereunto were wit- 
nesses Barnard Capen the younger and Jerom Wolverton. Barnard Capen

[It appears from a copy of an original Capen family record, printed in the

aged 75 yeers"; she was born about the year 1578. 

A fragment of the original grave-stone of Barnard and Joan Capen was 
found a few years ago, in the old cemetery at Dorchester. It is in possession 
of the New-England Historic Genealogical Society, a copy of wdiich is here 
appended, as, also, a copy from the renewed stone, as it now stands, in that 
ancient burial-ground. This is, probably, " the oldest Inscription to be found 
on any grave stone in New England," so far as the date of death of Barnard

of Mrs. Mary Godwyn of Lyme Regis in 16G5 (see Gleanings, Part I, pp. 70-71),

The testator John Purefoy was of Shalston in Bucks., son and heir of Ed- 
ward Pnrefoy of Shircford, Esq. (Leic.) who was born at Efllield, June 13, 141)4, 
and died at Shalston, June 1, 1558. Edward, Esq., was son and heir of Nicho- 
las. (Sec Herald's Visitation, published by Harl. Society, 18G9.) The pedigree 
reaches l)ack to A. D., 1277. John Purefoy of Shalston, the testator in the 
above abstract, was the one nieutionod on page I'J of my History of the 
Dudleys. Nicholls's History of Leicestershire says he married, at St. ])unstan's 
in London, Anne, daui^hter of Thomas AVindsor, Esq., of Bentley, sou of Sir 
Andrew Windsor, K.C.B., brother of Edmund Dudley's first wife, Ihat is, 
Edmund, father of John Duke of Northumberland. She was his second wife. 
The first wife of the testator, John Purefoy, was Elizabeth Bronie, dan. of 
Sir John Brome of Hatton, co. Oxon, Kt. He does not mention any children 
and prol)ably had no descendants. 

The Heralds' Visitation and Nicholls's Leicestershire, give the names of his 
eight brothers and five sisters, making 14 children of Edward Purefoy, Esq., 
and his wife Anne Fettiplace, (dau. of Richard Fettiplace of Bassils-leigh, 
Berks.) born at Shireford Parva July IG, 149G, d. 15G8. 

The fourteen children were as follows: 1. John, testator. 2. Thomas, mar- 
ried a daughter of Wenman or Waynman, d. s. p. 3, liichard, who (says the 
Visitation) married " Nicholas Eoxton, widow, daughter of Pell." This means 
NichoUs of Eaxtou, daughter of Pell. (See History of Dudley Family, page 
18.) She was dau. of John Pell of Eltington, Northants., and widow of 
Thomas Nicolls, Esq. One of the Visitations calls him " Nicholas de Pitchley," 
meaninj"; Nicolls of Pitchley (Pightsley) Northants. He was the father of Sir 
Augustine Nicolls, of Faxtou. Richard Purefoy purchased Faxton manor and 
he and his wife Anne (Pell) both died there. 4. Jleiiri/, d. s. p. 5, Edward, d

Thorne m. Rogers. 11. Elizahelh, m. Sir Humphrey Bradbonrne of Derby- 
shire. 12. Anne, m. Swillington. 13. Susan, a nnn of Syon. 14. Frances. 

The testator John Turefoy, in liis will liere abstracted mentions his wife 
"Anne Windsor," his nephew Edward Turefoy, son of 8 William, his nephew 
and niece George and Elizabeth, children of 9 Francis, his " cousin Thomas Ture- 
foy and his cousin Elizabeth his sister." These are the children of his uncle 
Simon Tnrefoy whose wife was Barbara Dixwell. They were 35 years of age. 
Elizal)cth was wife of William Ackworth of Kent. Perhaps they had lived with 
him in their youth. "Cousin Edward Purefoy" might mean his nephew Ed- 
ward's son Edward. " Tliomas, Mary and Katharine Worsley" were children 
of Katharine (Thorne) Worsley, wife of Francis Worsley and daughter of Mary 
(Purefoy) Thorne. The children of Andrew Sknc (Skernei') might have been 
his inotlier's grandchildren. Cousin iiobert Thorne, son or grandson of hi.s 
sister Mary. l*i"ol)a,l)ly this sentence is to be rcail, " My cousins Kobert Thorne, 
Mary Worsley and Katharine Worsley, Thomas Dudley and Thomas Strelley." 
His brother William's first Avife was an heiress, Avidow of Strelley. " Nephew 
Edward Thorne" was son of his sister Mary. " Brothers William and Richard 
Purefoy." Richard had no children. He was husband of Judge Nicolls's mother 
at Faxton, Northants. 

Our Gov. Thomas Dudley was three or four years of age in 1579. It may be 
that he was the Thomas Dudley of the will and that this was the legacy which 
was bequeathed him as Mather describes. (See Hist, of Dudley Family, page 
41.) If he was the legatee, his mother was probably a niece of the testator. It 
is quite interesting to see this name "Thomas Dudley," connected with these 
Purefoys, among whom we have been looking for his relations and for facts 
abont his mother's family, who were known to have been just such a Puritan 
race, connected with the NicoUs and Pell families. 

The wills of other Purefoys may show the nature of his kinship to them all. 
I feel very grateful to Mr. AVaters for all his good work. Dkan Dudley].

Andrew^ and Benjamin^ Faneuil were Huguenot refugees from La Rochelle, 
France. They first settled near New York city, at New Jloehelle. Benjamin 
married 28 July, IGDO, at Kin<^.ston, II. L, Ann Bureau; their sou Benjamin^

Andrew^ went to Holland and married there, brin.2jing his wife to this country, 
where she died IG July, 1724. He died 13 Feb., 1738, disinheriting his nephew 
Benjamin, and makiuii; his nephew Peter residuary legatee, and to the latter we 
are indebted for Faneuil Hall. 

The wills here given are of Andrew,* and Benjamin^ son of Benjamin,* 
grandson of l^enjaniin* and nephew of Peter^ Faneuil. Benjamin* married 
Mary, the daughter of Rev. Timothy Cuder, of Trinity Church, and died in 
1785 at Brighton, Mass. Benjamin,^ whose will is given, privately married the 
eldest daugiiter of Dr. Lloyd, and sister of the Hon. James Lloyd, and quietly 
departed with her to England, where they were the centre of a circle of re- 
fugees from the colonies. Mary^ the sister of the testator, married George 

The family name of Faneuil has disappeared, there being no descendants of 
the male line through the testator or his brother Peter, ^ who went to Canada. —
